The Kona underpants run is a race-week tradition designed
to poke fun (and discourage) those athletes who insist on
wearing their training gear in unsuitable endeavors, such as
shopping, dining out or hitting the local coffee shop, Lava Java.
Below runners take the underpants oath before beginning
their one mile jog through town. The pictures below speak
for themselves - it is quite the site to behold, or participate in!
