Naked 5K Calendar

Scroll down below for our list of 2022 races.

For a list of upcoming clothing optional runs (and some bike rides), I made some races Facebook events. Go to the tinyurl below and you can see our Facebook version (not as complete) on any mobile phone!

Blue Bonnet 5K (Texas)

For International Lesbian Day here are two naked songs for everyone that just happened to be by lesbian singer songwriters.

Mia Sharp and Ria Mae both have great songs about asking someone to take their clothes off. Both are out lesbians, but both want to be considered mainstream artists.

Mia Sharp recorded the acoustical version in 2013

Mia Sharp album version from 2015 The Dash Between the Dates

Ria Mae – Clothes Off (Stripped Down) 2015

Ria Mae – Clothes Off (Glenn Morrison Commercial Remix) (Audio)

Bouncing Buns at Sunny Rest report

First day nudist and college cross country runner showed up and was 3rd overall women

Another woman medalist also has posted a blog on naked running on another site.

Construction in the resort that we were not aware of required us to shorten the course by 3/10th of a mile. In addition, poor communication between the race director (absent due to major emergency surgery) and the person marking the course resulted in another considerable reduction of the course; to a final measurement of an estimated 2.25 miles.  Our sincere apologies that this health issue led to an incorrect course. We hope that everyone still had FUN! (from PretzelCitySports.com )

Naked songs by Canadians

Collecting a playlist of songs with words like naked, birthday suit, skinny dip, nothing on but the radio, and more, I found more than a few by Canadian artists. This is not a complete list.

2022 Nudist Races

We highly recommend registering for the race online to speed up registration. While no nudist race has required proof of vaccination and/or results of a negative Covid-19 test yet, we also recommend all athletes get vaccinated AND get a test before arriving at the resort.

Please keep in mind that outbreaks can still occur and follow a race’s web site and social media for last minute updates. Have fun and stay safe!

If You Are Going To be Interviewed About Nudity, Dress Well

The New York Times feature, it was listed among other stories in that day’s paper on the bottom of Page 1, got enough attention that local Detroit media caught attention. Nancy Derringer contacted me about an interview. After exchanging a few emails I got a good sense of where she was coming from, but you never know. Plus, most interviews of male nudists seem to be men who look either creepy or they were fired for being a drunk Santa Claus.

So, I wore a button down collar light blue dress shirt and a navy tie. I remember John T. Molloy writing in his Dress For Success newspaper column that the more extreme your views are, the more important it is to dress normal.

Here is the story, and I think it came off well as showing nudist running races a lot more normal than a supermarket tabloid would show us. Thanks again to Nancy Derringer and DeadLineDetroit.com for treating us with respect.

We are in the New York Times!

In February Bruce ran a 27:54 5K with 130 entries and was 26th overall. He drove 9 hours from Detroit and ran 27:00 with only 115 entries, but was 42nd overall. That’s how competitive the Pretzel City Sports series is.

Jen A. Miller has a newsletter too, which allows some back stories to the published feature
