Thankgiving is in fact the biggest day for 5Ks in South Florida…so join in on the fun and participate in a Turkey Trot near you! I personally will be racing in the Levis JCC Turkey Trot on Thursday morning at 7:30am at South County Regional Park in West Boca Raton! Hope to see you there! Details below!
You could say it is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Run/race a 5K naked and have people look the other way (or maybe not…)! And for us South Floridians, this may be the best (and potentially only) chance.
The annual Streak Sunsport Gardens 5K in Loxahatchee Gardens, Florida will take place this weekend! I first learned about the intriguing and unique race last year in a great news article by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel’s Nick Sortal. (Talk about going into the trenches as a reporter…Nick actually ran the race…NAKED!) He again wrote about the upcoming race in today’s Sentinel – this time prior – so that all of those that are interested can add it to their calendars.
Here are all the details:
Streak Sunsport Gardens 5K
When: 8:30 a.m. Saturday
Where: Sunsport Gardens Family Naturist Resort, 14125 North Road, Loxahatchee Gardens
Contact: 352-354-2474 or Aquasunevents.com

Oh, and if you decide to go (and run), please let me know so as RunningTips101.com would love to hear your thoughts, get your feedback, and potentially feature your (appropriate) pictures!
