Last weekend my friends and I teamed up for the naked trail race at Sunny Rest naturist resort in Pennsylvania, and we scored two trophies, including the absolute first! Yes, one of us, Casey, ran that tough 6km trail in just 27 min 47 sec. David brought another trophy for the 4th male under 39 years old (8th total). I was 13th, but I was happy I could run the race at all, as I wasn’t sure how my ankle would feel still not fully recovered from the injury that I got after I was run over by car in January. This was my third year attending the race, and although the route have gotten shorter from 7 to 6km, it has also acquired some steep slopes this time. Probably for this reason, besides the injury, my result was 3min longer than last year despite a shorter track (32:16). It’s a pity another prize-winning ‘Team America’ from last year didn’t show up this time, but there was more than enough competition with 159 participants.
I was also recognized by one of the readers of my blog, who actually said he was inspired by it to participate in the race. This kind of comment is probably the best praise I could expect from my blog, this is what keeps me motivated to run it!
After the award ceremony, we ate lunch and I was glad to find out that the restaurant at Sunny Rest has improved tremendously and offers now a diverse menu of pretty good quality. Then we rested from the race in the pool and hot tub… but not for too long, as we also wanted to play volleyball. We had a few fun matches but needed even more rest afterwards, so we mostly hung out at the sauna and hot tubs in the evening. Next day, our activities started with yoga at the lawn near the tenting site followed by a short hike, partially on the trail that was used for the race.
The outskirts of a field proved to be a good spot for nude photography.
We also played some touch rugby in the afternoon, inspired by the recent match of Nude Blacks in New Zealand.
We played with just 3 players in each team, but it was still a lot of fun.
We all concluded that we should play it more often, so maybe we’ll build up a team some day. And maybe it will be as successful in rugby as in running? 🙂

Terrific and inspiring as always. Thank you once more for a fine account and beautiful photos!!
it’s always a big pleasure to see you naked guys…!! Thank you so much 🙂
Looks like so much fun!!! Great Pics!! Happy Gay Pride Weekend !!! Naked– of coarse.. 😉
Based solely on skin tone, it seems possible two of your team could have been “ringers”. Former Olympic runners perhaps? 🙂
Reblogged this on clothes free life and commented:

Thank you! I feel more motivated too. This turns into an endless motivational circuit with positive feedback 😉
Yeah, gotta second the above comment. Rugby played barefoot and with seamless tans! It looks so natural and so fun … I wonder if I would have become more athletic if I had had this kind of exposure to sports fifty some years ago …
Yes, thanks for posting!
To me, this is what true naturism is all about…thanks for posting (again and again)!
