17th Annual Bare Buns Fun Run (West) is this Sunday

Sunday, July 20th, 2008 11:00 A.M.
Be Brave, Be Tough, Beat the Mountain in the Buff

The Annual Bare Buns Fun West is sponsored by Fraternity Snoqualmie. It is a 5K (3.1 mile) Trail Run/Walk on beautiful Tiger Mountain. The challenging course runs over unpaved road, with a short section of cross country. Up hill to the turn around and back downhill. If you find the risk of sunburn challenging enough, the course is a serene walk through the forest.

Clothing Optional Fraternity Snoqualmie sponsors this race, but that doesn't mean you have to leave your clothes at the gate. "Clothing Optional" means just that; it's your option. You don't have to run nude, however this race will have many nude participants and officials.

Guests Welcome
Guests can cheer you on from the sidelines and stay to enjoy the incredible facilities the entire day with you! Please see the registration form for more information. Anyone (members or not) can begin camping on Friday and participate in the Saturday dance, karoake, and pasta feed.

No Cameras or Video Recorders!
Fraternity Snoqualmie permits cameras for staff and press only. All unauthorized cameras will be confiscated and returned after the event minus film.

Take Exit 15 West off I-90 (State Route 900), turn left at Newport Way NW. You will be required to park your vehicle at the Tibbetts Valley Park & Ride. A regularly scheduled shuttle service will run between the Park n' Ride and FS. Access to the event site will be closed to any vehicles with less than three (3) persons. Please contact FS if you need a handicap pass.
