Tired of time-consuming transitions? Want to take part in what could be the UK’s biggest ever gathering of naked people? Then good news! The first Human Race Naked Triathlon will debut on Saturday 4 July for all triathletes aged 18+, involving a 500m swim, a saddle-sore inducing 16k cycle, and a 5k run to finish.
All of the events will take place at Dorney Lake in Buckinghamshire. If the winner of any event is caught wearing shoes, underwear or clothing or any type they are expected to be ‘stripped’ of their title.
Speaking about the event, triathlon official Richard Burvill said “The rules are quite strict regarding clothing worn, but we have made a special exception for this event. I would ask though that everyone taking part is careful with where they put their limbs when performing swimming strokes.”
Plenty of helmets will be on show, as cyclists will be asked to wear them as a safety measure. Anybody who completes a ‘winning streak’ of all three events will take home their weight in nuts thanks to a generous sponsor.
For those who want to bare all, the organisers are running a 24 hour flash sale on April 1st to encourage participants to enter early. Visit www.humanrace.co.uk today to ensure you don’t get a bum deal.
