Following 2 years of successful Naked November campaigns, the month-long celebration of nakedness returns again this year & is sure to be bigger, better & even more naked!
SO WHAT IS IT?
DISCLAIMER: You may be either disappointed or relieved to learn that Naked November is NOT about running around without any clothes on!
Naked November is not about harassing or pressuring you into running a certain way...we love the fact more people than ever are running and that's the most important thing.
But in these modern times where our lives are so often tied to the multitude of gadgets and devices on offer (see above), we’d love to give you the option of going without some of these things every now and then.
We call this 'running NAKED’....stripping back the experience to uncover the raw, unrefined approach to running that dates back thousands of years.
HOW DO I RUN NAKED?
Step 1) Keep your clothes on (its not THAT sort of naked!)
Step 2) Leave 1 or more gadgets behind (e.g iPod/mp3, phone, HRM, GPS, watch, metronome, guitar tuner, or any other device)
Step 3) Run!
HOW OFTEN? On at least one of your runs during November, or as many times as you like!
IDRN: 'International Day of Running Naked' is a day where the worldwide running community can celebrate getting 'naked' together. This year IDRN takes place on Saturday 15th November.
