Race History

How We Got Started

Bare Mountain Retreat has developed over 5 miles of trails over the past several years and we were looking for a way to show them off to a larger audience. The idea of a nude fun run that was different from others was suggested. Several members went to work and the Streak to the Peak was born.

Our First Race

The first Steak to the Peak was held on September 9, 2018, with a limited number of entries available. 38 men and women undertook the challenging course including 20 club members and 18 visitors. The event was such a success that the number of entries was doubled for the following year.

2019 Race

The 2019 race was interesting. We made changes to the racecourse and more than doubled the number of runners. However, on race day an unusual September storm rolled in drenching the mountain in rain. Nevertheless, our intrepid runners braved the inclement weather, were serenaded to live mid-race fiddle music and raced to the top of the mountain. There was even a marriage proposal at the conclusion of the race.

2020 Race

Unfortunately, like many other activities in 2020, the Streak to the Peak was canceled due to COVID 19 concerns.
