The walk/run/bike in bra and Anna Ross event is just one of the many events around the country, though most are concentrated in the Central Valley and San José, where the majority of the country’s population live.

This is the second walk/run/bike in bra event in the country. Last year some 300 women came out in their bras. The walk/run/bike in bra event is open to all ages and sexes.
