Underwear-clad runners took a jog from Salt Lake City Hall to the Utah Capitol, up State Street and back, Sunday, October 6, 2013, to beat the record the group set last year.

Participants in the Utah Underwear Run gave folks in post-General Conference downtown Salt Lake City an eyeful on Sunday.
Runners dressed only in their underwear began their run at 5 p.m., about an hour after the Mormon church’s final conference session dispersed for the weekend.
Organizers had initially planned the downtown run for 4 p.m., the end time for the final session.
But city officials moved the start back an hour to avoid further exacerbating congestion that typically occurs at the end of a session at the 21,000-seat Conference Center.
The run began at Library Square, went up State Street, past Temple Square, up and around the Capitol and ended back at Library Square.
