On April 18, nude 5K running finally comes to Southern California with the Bare Burro 5K at Olive Dell Ranch!
There are many nude runs around the country, attracting hundreds of runners for a day of freedom, exercise and fun. The Bare Buns Fun Run series is a total of 3 events at Kaniksu Ranch, Fraternity Snoqualamie and Wreck Beach in Vancouver Canada that attracts hundreds of runners to each event. In 2009 the overall winner posted a very impressive time of 00:16:33 so there’s opportunity for real competition as well as fun.
Southern California has always faced a challenge of not having nudist resorts with large enough grounds to host a 5K run. But with millions of people living in the area, and tens of thousands of runners participating in 5K runs from San Diego to Santa Barbara – it’s time to put on the running shoes (and nothing else) and get running. The idea has even been supported by Nike with their online video for a nude running camp.
Thanks to some thinking and networking on the part of Ken and Bobby at Olive Dell Ranch, a 5K trail course has been created that follows trails through Olive Dell and adjacent private property. It’s only $25, includes a t-shirt, full day admission to Olive Dell and some other fun planned for the post-race party. The run begins and ends at the Olive Dell clubhouse with swimming pool, sun decks, HUGE jacuzzi, game room and restaurant.
There will be prizes for top finishers in age categories, and for men and women. Whether you want to run, walk, or a little of both its a great way to get active, do something different and have some fun. You can get registration forms from the Olive Dell Ranch home page, or online from Active.com.
The team from Things To Do Nude is helping with the organization and publicity, and will be there on the day of the event.
Running naked is natural (nothing gets harmed) and fun. Mark Sunday April 18 on your calendar, sign-up now and we’ll see you there!
