26th Annual Skinnydipper Sun Run 5K
Saturday, April 27, 2024
|IN GENERAL |
People are curious about nudism. However, the nudist philosophy is simple: being nude is natural. Runners have found that nude running gives them a feeling of freedom and exhilaration that cannot be matched in any other way.
The Skinnydipper Sun Run is a clothing optional cross-country race that is fun and challenging and includes ravines, logs, gravel roads, trails thru woods and open meadows. The race will be chip timed.
No pets, bicycles, strollers, baby joggers, or in-line skates will be permitted on the course for safety reasons.

The gate opens at 9:00 AM so you can get in a bit of relaxation before the race. Please try to arrive an hour before race time so you’ll have plenty of time to park, check-in, receive your packet and timing chip, hydrate, warm-up, etc.
On race day, the resort will open to members and runners, only. General spectators will not be allowed access to the resort. However, if your spouse or significant other is not a runner, please feel free to bring them along. Just place his or her name on the “Volunteer” line of the entry form. We’ll put them to work cheering you on as a course monitor, aid station worker, or finish line volunteer.

Cameras are not permitted as we are sure you understand that some people do not wish their nude photos to be owned by others.
AFTER THE RACE
Complimentary snacks and refreshments will be provided after the race and a BBQ dinner will be held at 4:00 PM. There is no additional charge for the dinner. Runners are also invited to stay for the dance at 7:00 PM.
SHOULD I BRING ANYTHING?
Don’t forget to bring a towel. At any nudist facility, proper etiquette requires the placement of a towel between you and anything you sit on. In addition, it’s useful to have that towel around to dry off after you enjoy the shower, pool, or hot tub.
