2022 Annual Bare Burro 5k Race!

Event Info

If you’ve never experienced a nude 5K weekend, this is your chance. If you’ve been before, you know it’s three days of sun and fun and runs and relaxation. The 13th annual Bare Burro Nude 5K weekend starts Friday April 22, with the running of the Bare Burro Nude 5K on Sunday the 24th. Previous years have seen up to 350 registered runners and fun-lovers. Check out the video for more details and scenes from previous years.

You can register for the whole weekend, or just for the 5K run on Sunday. It’s up to you. Just sign up for the run, and you’ll have the option to add the full weekend package before you check out.

Weekend events include karaoke on Friday night, lots of sports, recreation and relaxation and a One-Piece party Saturday night. That means you’re allowed One-Piece of clothing (other than shoes), so you can choose a toga, a hat, a pareo, it’s up to you. These are included in your camping weekend package. The Naked Beer Mile Fun Run is Saturday afternoon at 3pm. It’s just $10 and includes your beer or carbonated soda.

Sunday is the Bare Burro Nude 5K which is a challenging and technical course through the foothills above Olive Dell Ranch. You can run the course like many of our elite athletes, or walk or jog at your own comfort level. It’s all private property and nudity is allowed anywhere anytime (and mandatory in the pool, jacuzzi and during the Beer Mile and 5K runs).

The race is professionally timed, and awards are provided for all top finishers in each age and gender category. This includes a pair of ultra-cool Goodr sunglasses thanks to their sponsorship of the run.

Your privacy is important so we never share your name or details with anyone except the event organizers. General photography is strictly prohibited and race results are published by first name and last initial only.

As COVID policies and social distancing recommendations are always evolving, we will post details closer to the race event. More details will be announced in mid April.

We look forward to welcoming back the hundreds of runners who have participated before, as well as greeting new guests who are ready to try something a little different, and a lot of fun. Hope to see you there.
