Be Brave, Be Tough, Beat the Mountain, in the Buff!
Annual Bare Buns Fun Run~West, Clothing Optional 5k.
Usually the 2nd Sunday in July.
Online registration coming soon!
Day of race registration from 8-10am
It is a 5K (3.1 mile) Trail Run/Walk on beautiful Tiger Mountain, starting and finishing in the park. The challenging course runs over unpaved road, with a short section of cross country, uphill to the turn around and back downhill. If you find the risk of sunburn challenging enough, the course is a serene walk through the forest.
Tiger Mountain Family Nudist Park sponsors this race, but that doesn’t mean you have to leave your clothes at the gate. “Clothing Optional” means just that; it’s your option. You don’t have to run nude, however, this race will have many nude participants and officials.
Guests can cheer you on from the sidelines and stay to enjoy the incredible facilities the entire day with you! You can register them using our online registration, or day of race at the park.
After the race
After the race, take an opportunity to go skinny-dipping in our crystal clear heated pool, while race results are tabulated. The top three runners in each age/gender category will be presented an award. We will hold a drawing for other prizes also.
We encourage you to take advantage of our expanded camping facilities on race weekend. It is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors, naturally (no luggage worries). Our membership fees include tent and car camping. Children under 18 camp free in parent or guardian’s tent. We have showers and restrooms (port-a-potties on day of race) available so bring your tent and spend the weekend. RV sites are also available by reservation.
