Thousands run in undies in Utah

SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 25 (UPI) -- Thousands of runners may have broken a Guinness World Record for most people running in their underwear in Utah.

About 3,000 people showed up Saturday night to run from the Gallivan Center in Salt Lake City -- some for fun, others to try to send a message, KSTU-TV, Salt Lake City, reported.

"This is all about peace, love and supporting equal rights for LDS [Mormons], non-LDS, gay, straight, doesn't matter," runner Lisa Jackman said.

Some say the message may have been lost in the sea of panties and boxers.

"I see a lot of political messages maybe, but honestly I'm just here to have a lot of fun," runner Kevin Norton said. "I don't look at this stuff, I don't pay attention to it."
