    Naked Fellrunning

    Full credit to our Mountain Rescue team in North East Wales NEWSAR!

    I ran up our mountain a few weeks ago to find some rather sheepish individuals glad that I'd not been up half an our earlier. The reason became clear later on and the evidence was broadcast on Channel 4 this week!!!

    So who's up for a nude fell race? Judging by the response at last night's pub run at the Colomendy we had abut a dozen potential enthusiasts. Has this been done before? Do we need warm weather or cold weather? Bum Bags???

    There's a section in the 'hallowed' Bill Smith book 'Stud Marks on the Summits' about naked fellrunning. It was once a traditional (though sporadic) popular feature of northern cultural life. Very popular, if you believe what Smith says – hordes of people came out to watch naked fell races. Me and Geoff Reid from Rochdale (he led me astray, I swear) toyed with the idea of organising a naked fell race in the nineties. We mentioned it to a few people, and thought it would be a laugh. The general embarrassed silence led us to think it wasn't such a good idea for most runners.

    So would the Telford race be called streakin on the Wrekin?

    Or perhaps the grin and bare it race??

    I remember a "stag" type run which a small group of us completed quite a few years ago. The groom went for a dip in the Slippery Stones area and had his shorts knicked. A few of us decided to keep him company around the dams. Luckily, very few people were around at the time. The freedom was wonderful, not sure about the midges though.

    NO!

    Seeing Daz H half naked is enough as it is to give my night-mares.
