TRYNUDETHON AND TRYNUDETHON-LITE
For a fall event, Tallahassee Naturally announces the Fourth Annual Trynudethon (nude triathlon) on Saturday, September 17. (Rain date is September 24.)
The course is short but challenging:
- 250 meter swim the length of the lake and back.
- 4 kilometer bicycle race—mostly open forest road, but less than 1 kilometer is narrow woodland trail, with lots of ups and downs, sharp turns, and palmetto roots.
- 2 kilometer run on open forest road, but the last half can be swampy, with parts under six inches of water in some years. Near the end, everyone will wade across a shallow lily pond (1 to 2 feet deep with a solid bottom). [This portion is subject to re-routing.]
The race begins and ends nude. Those who want to take the time may put on shoes (or a sports bra) for the running part, and remove them again before the finish line.
- 9:00 Registration begins at the gate. (No pre-registration.)
- 10:00 begins.
- 10:15 Lite begins.
All day: Skinny-dipping, sunbathing, canoeing, paddle boat, volleyball.
The $20 registration fee for a contestant also waives the usual daily grounds fee for the whole family for the whole day. Playground equipment is available for the children.
Medallions will go to the fastest three men, and the fastest three women.
This is a much easier half-course that does not require a mountain bike, but can be done with an ordinary street bicycle. The fastest three men and women in this division receive certificates. There is no entry fee for the Lite race.
Friday night is a Full-Moon Skinny-Dip. Free overnight rustic camping is available. Just make sure you don't pitch your tent where people will be racing in the morning
