It seems that naked sport is on the up so if you’re looking for a new challenge to keep your pecker up here are a few events that might do more than just raise your eyebrow.
Since 2014 ZSL’s London zoo has put on an annual Streak for Tigers run where participants run around the animal enclosures in nothing but trainers and optional tiger body paint. The event has raised an amazing £135,000 for the wildlife fund but unfortunately is taking a break in 2018.
On May 13th 2018 the Naturist Foundation are putting on the Naked 5k Run. This run is open to anyone and you can enter via the link we’re provided where all information (other than the location) can be found. Our guess is that they are keeping the venue on the down low to reduce media attention which was justified by the fact that our Facebook post about the run received over 1,500 comments in 48 hours!
British Naturism are also hosting a 5k and 10k at the NudeFest 2018 in Somerset on Saturday 14th July. All details can be found here: https://www.bn.org.uk/calendar/event/4111-5k10k-run-at-nudefest/
If you like the idea of running around with your Willy out but don’t want to get completely naked then The Great Willy Waddle could well be the event for you. 3k around the Queen Elizabeth Olympic park dressed in a giant inflatable penis was certainly one of the most fun (and serial) runs we’ve ever done. Check out our review of the 2015 event here: https://quirkyraces.com/2016/11/15/where-is-willy-run/
If the want to support Orchid – Male Cancer Charity and act like a massive knob for a night then this year’s event takes place in September: https://www.facebook.com/events/158240891558473??ti=ia
We’ve all thrown off our clothes and ran in the sea after a few too many drinks on holiday right? Well now you can do it as an organised (and safer) event as The Great British Skinny Dip are aiming to put on nude swims, that are accessible to anyone, all over the UK with 12 venues already set up. You can find out where here: http://greatbritishskinnydip.co.uk/events/
If you want to swim with nothing but your goggles on in slightly more private surrounding while still embracing the great outdoors then check out Red Bulls’ 10 top UK skinny dipping spots:
In June the World Naked Bike Ride is returning to the UK and more specifically Folkestone. This is a global ride where cyclists bare all to promote awareness of safety on the roads. Kent Live sum this event up here: https://www.kentlive.news/whats-on/whats-on-news/world-naked-bike-ride-2018-1463743
Before saddling up be sure to read Active’s ‘7 things to know before joining a naked bike ride’ which includes such wisdom as ‘Just be sure you bring socially acceptable clothing for post-ride activities. Nude is cool during the ride, but not always at the bar after.’ You’ll do well to remember that one in general life as well as naked cycling!
