Cupids Undie Run NY

Running For A Cause

Cupid

Get ready to bear all (well, almost) and take part in the 2016 Cupids Undie Run New York City on February 13th. The event is a huge fundraiser for the Children's Tumor Foundation, so you know every penny is put to good use. Join in with other undie runners or cheer on the athletes as they make their way through the 1 mile course.

Courtyard New York LaGuardia Airport Hotel – the Perfect Undie Run Home Base

Courtyard LaGuardia's prime location next to the airport and the ability to arrange for NYC transportation makes us the ideal location for people traveling to the Big Apple.

Here's what to expect at Cupids Undie Run NY:

The party starts at noon on February 13th, 2016. Since this run is for a cause, the awards ceremony will be held at 1pm (before the run) to honor the highest fundraisers and give out some sweet prizes. The run will start at 2pm and consist of a 1 mile course on the streets of New York. After crossing the finish line, runners are invited back to the party for even more fun. Wouldn't it be great if more runs were sandwiched in between parties? If any of this sounds like a blast, start your fundraising engines, pick out your best pair of undies, and plan your trip to NYC for Valentine's Day weekend.

Whether you're flying in for the run or to show your support for the cause, we invite you to book your stay at Courtyard New York LaGuardia Airport Hotel. Good luck and stay warm!

Anyone who has been to New York during the holidays will tell you that it is a magical place to spend the season. The city transforms into a winter wonderland full of joy and festive spirit. There is always something happening in New York City during the holidays and you will not want to miss a minute of the fun.

Famous New York City festivities

Many events in NYC have become representative of the holiday season. From the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade to the Times Square New Year’s Eve Countdown, your holiday celebration will be unforgettable. The Rockefeller Christmas Tree will be lit on December 2nd, so you can stroll up 5th Avenue looking at the decorations and end by ice-skating under the tree at Rockefeller Center. The Nutcracker and the Radio City Christmas Spectacular are just around the corner and offer more holiday fun.

How to make the most of your Holiday Travel to New York City

The above events are only the start of the seasonal festivities in the city. From Broadway shows to concerts, there are countless ways to celebrate. Shop for one-of-a-kind gifts at the holiday villages in Union Square, Bryant Park, Columbus Circle, and more. These holiday villages feature charming booths selling everything from global cuisine to hand-made dolls. NYC is the perfect place to find something for everyone during the holidays.

Manhattan is full of holiday fun, but it is also loud and crowded. When you are ready for bed, you will quickly grow weary of the horns and sirens that fill Manhattan. Instead, stay at the Courtyard New York LaGuardia Airport Hotel. Located in a quieter part of town, you will be able to relax and restore, but you will still be only a few subway stops away from the heart of Manhattan. The Courtyard LaGuardia is the perfect place to stay while you celebrate your holidays in New York City.
