It's the ultimate fun run, bucket list event and genuinely unique and challenging 5K. The 8th Annual Bare Burro Nude 5K is the best nude run in Southern California. It starts at Olive Dell Nudist Resort and goes through the foothills, along trails with panoramic views, ending back at the resort swimming pool and clubhouse. It's a technical course that's roughly 50% dirt fire roads and the balance on single track dirt trails.
With runs of up to 300 participants, there is a great mix of serious runners and fun lovers looking for a unique running experience. Top finishers are highly competitive with a number of running clubs participating. A breakdown of finishing times by sex and age group is on the Event Website. Price includes commemorative gift, awards for top 3 finishers in each age grade, all day admission to the club with tennis, restaurant, pool and huge jacuzzi.
Here's a look at the new trail taken by a GoPro on a runner.
