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 eighth-annual Caliente Bare Dare 5K will take place on Sunday, May 7, 2017.
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 September 10, 2016. Cypress Cove, known to members and guests as “The Cove,” is convenient to Orlando, Tampa, and the theme parks of Central Florida. Registration is available at nude5k.com.
In 2014 and 2015, Enterprise Media staged the Nude SUP Challenge, the world’s first and only clothing-optional stand-up paddleboard race. Athletes competed a four-mile course on Brown Lake within the grounds of the Cypress Cove Resort.
Why nude racing? Some people sign up for the Caliente Bare Dare, Streak the Cove, 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 or towels 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!
