HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Hundreds of runners bared it all on the streets of Rice Village today for the 2016 Hot Undies Run.

The two-mile pub run brought out dozens in character and costume, and it was all for a good cause.

This year's event benefited Girls on the Run of Greater Houston, which aims to get more girls out on the track for health and confidence.

Many of the runners this year coordinated in rainbow hues and fanciful team costumes.
