Arrive undressed to impress because the infamous costume contest will happen BEFORE the race this year. Judges will roam be looking for the most fabulous costumes. We will announce the winners during this expo before the race. You won’t want to miss it!
Upon finishing the race, join fellow participants at the EXPOsed Afterparty! Check out our FAQ page for quick answers to the most commonly questions about Race Day.
Winning Time Canada Timing Chip
A Winning Time chip, worn on an easy-on/easy-off shoelace strap, will track your start and finish times electronically and provide accurate results. Both runners and walkers use this system. With the Winning Time timing system, each athlete receives fast and accurate net times. Results will be available at the post-race party and online the week following The Affair.
Pick up your timing chip with your bib number at The Underwear Affair EXPOsed on June 16, 2012. Chips are non-transferable. You MUST use the chip issued to you. DO NOT switch chips or let someone else run with your chip.
For more information about the Winning Time chip, please visit www.winningtime.ca.
You can check your belongings at the bag check so you don’t have to worry about racing with your phone or wallet.
