Nude Races was established in 2010 by Enterprise Media, LLC with the launch of the inaugural Caliente Bare Dare 5K at the world-class, clothing-optional Caliente Resort in Land O’Lakes, Florida. Nearly 200 runners accepted “The Bare Dare” and completed the 3.1-mile course through the beautiful 125-acre property. The event has grown to more than 300 runners and now determines the National Championship of Nude Running. The seventh-annual Caliente Bare Dare 5K will take place on Sunday, May 1, 2016 and registration will open in December 2015.
In 2011, Enterprise Media LLC expanded its offerings to include the Streak the Cove 5K at the Cypress Cove Resort in Kissimmee, Fla. More than 150 athletes competed in each of the first four events and the sixth-annual Streak the Cove 5K will take place in September 2016. Cypress Cove, known to members and guests as “The Cove,” is convenient to Orlando, Tampa, and the theme parks of Central Florida.
On September 6, 2014, Enterprise Media LLC staged the world’s first clothing-optional stand-up paddleboard race, the Nude SUP Challenge. The third-annual four-mile, flatwater event, held at Cypress Cove on the resort’s 50-acre Brown Lake, will take place in September 2016, highlighting a clothing-optional weekend of endurance sports at The Cove. Registration for both Cypress Cove events will open in May 2016 at nude5k.com and supnude.com.
Why nude racing? Some people sign up for the Caliente Bare Dare, Streak the Cove, Nude SUP Challenge, and other clothing-optional races as bucket-list items only to find they enjoy the experience so much they add the event(s) to their annual running schedules. Unlike most races, where athletes tend to depart the race site immediately following the finish or awards ceremony, at our races runners tend to make a day – or even a weekend – out of the event.
We guarantee that our races will be your most memorable – and not just because you have the option of racing in only shoes and sunscreen. We offer custom awards to top finishers, valuable raffle prizes, and quality T-shirts without a cluster of logos on the back. This is a T-shirt you’ll want to wear – when you’re not racing in the buff, of course!
