Despite CSU condemnation, Undie Run to go on

The CSU administration has denounced it and the goodwill of donating stripped clothes is gone, yet the university's infamous Undie Run will once again take place Friday.

FORT COLLINS COLORADOAN - The CSU administration has denounced it and the goodwill of donating stripped clothes is gone, yet the university's infamous Undie Run will once again take place Friday.

The event starts at 8 p.m. near the campus recreation center for the one-mile lap around campus.
