I stumbled (which is what I would have done in the High Heel Dash!) upon another unique fundraiser. This one is the Fig Leaf Five K which takes place every April in Dawsonville, Georgia.
It's what you'd call a real "laid back" competition. Participants can run, or walk; wear clothes or not. However, the attitude for many is "Show off what you've worked so hard for!" The early entry fee is $20.00. Anyone who signs up after the early fee deadline--that was April 13 for 2010--must pay $25.00. All funds raised benefit the American Cancer Society.
The race is held at the Paradise Valley Nudist Resort in the mountains of Georgia, which advertises itself as an eco-friendly clothing optional vacation community. Race participants are welcome to enjoy the amenities the facility has to offer.
The resort has 3 pools, indoor and outdoor hot tubs, tennis courts, hiking trails, table tennis, and a night club with a full bar. Resort etiquette requires that you bring a towel to sit on.
It is suggested that you may want to wear sneakers or running shoes and socks for the race...it's easier on the feet. Lots of sunscreen is a must. If you're racing nude, chances are you are exposing parts of your body to the sun that haven't been exposed to much sunshine in the past. Protecting yourself from sunburn is essential!
Note: If nudity isn't your thing, and you need a t-shirt to wear, check out the tees at the Wrestling With Retirement Gift Shop!
