It's the ultimate fun run, bucket list event and genuinely unique and challenging 5K. The 9th Annual Bare Burro Nude 5K is the best nude run in Southern California. It starts at Olive Dell Nudist Resort and winds 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 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. You can check out a recap of finishing times by sex and age group 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.
And there’s way more than just the 5K run! The 2nd Annual Naked Beer Mile Fun Run is on Saturday April 21 at 3pm. On Saturday there will also be a slack line, some competitions in the pool, a special dinner prepared by the restaurant, and a toga party Saturday night. So make a full weekend of it and come out on Saturday and enjoy two days of run and recreation. You can book the beer mile and camping when making your race registrations.
Thanks to our sponsors Goodr Sunglasses and Pickle Juice all race winners get a pair of the insanely stylish Goodr running sunglasses, and all participants can enjoy samples of Pickle Juice, a drink with 10x more electrolytes than than other sports drinks.
