Drink up and take it off

CATEGORIES: Beer Editor   Beer Runner  

In recent years, we have seen the rise of races where runners compete while in underwear, covered in mud, shot at with colors, electrocuted and, of course, drinking beer.

Now you can add stripping while running to the list of offbeat races.

This weekend’s Strip N Run — not to be confused with the Tap N Run — encourages runners to take it all off (well, at least most of it off) while completing a 5K in Indianapolis.

According to the registration site, participants wear as many layers as possible and remove their garments as they approach 1 of 4 Strip Stations. The cast-offs will then be donated to charity. That’s a lot more adventurous than dropping off a box at Goodwill.

The race is not timed, but there will be prizes for taking off the most layers.

Of course, beer is involved. The race starts and ends near Scotty’s Brewhouse, and runners get a free beer at the finish line beer garden.

For more info and to register, visit the Strip N Run website.

    Fun idea with the different stations. Colorado State University students have hosted an Undie Run for 6 years now, where runners strip down at the starting line and clothes are donated. Thie structure might bring in more donations though.
