 (Download brochure and entry form)


Visit our location page for directions on how to get to Bluebonnet.


Please try to arrive an hour before race time so you’ll have plenty of time to park, check-in, receive your packet, hydrate, warm-up, etc. The gate opens at 9:00 AM so you can get in a bit of relaxation before the race.

The race starts at 1:00 PM (gates will close at 12:30 PM, and re-open once the race is completed).

On race day, the resort will be open to members and runners only. General spectators will not be allowed access to the resort. However, if your spouse or significant other is not a runner, please feel free to bring them along. Just place his or her name on the “Volunteer” line of the entry form. We’ll put them to work cheering you on as a course monitor, aid station worker, or finish line volunteer.


The 5K race course is definitely cross-country. It is a fun and challenging course laid out on gravel roads and trails that are enclosed entirely within the resort. For safety reasons, no pets, bicycles, strollers, baby joggers, or in-line skates will be permitted on the course. The race will be electronic chip timed.



To register in advance, use the attached entry form or print on-line entry form. Complete and mail the form so it is postmarked on or before September 2, 2017 with your check or money order payable to: Bluebonnet, 699 CR 1180, Alvord, TX 76225. Do not mail your entry form if it would be postmarked after September 2. In such case, you should register in person.


Registration and packet pick up can be performed in person only on race day, September 16th.

After the race, a drawing for door prizes will be held. You must be present to win.


It seems a bit odd to be handing out clothing for a clothing optional event. However, runners treasure their “Bare As You Dare” shirts and love to wear them.

All pre-registered runners will receive a race T-shirt. Please keep your T-Shirt with you for the Group photo BEFORE the race. We’ll attempt to prepare enough T-shirts to supply everyone registering on race day, as well. But please be aware that we can only guess how many runners will choose to register on the day of the event. On race day, we’ll hand out all additional T-shirts on a “first-come, first-served” basis.


We’re sorry, but pictures will not be permitted within Bluebonnet Resort on race day. Cameras or Camera Phones should be left at home or in your vehicle. We’re sure you understand that there are runners who do not wish their nude photos to be owned by others.

There will, however, be an official race photographer who will commemorate the race with a group nude and non-nude photo which will be taken before the event of those who wish to participate. All participants should bring their T-Shirts with them for the Group Photo before the race. You are welcome to fill out the form included in your registration packet if you wish to have a copy of either of these photos.


Complimentary snacks and refreshments will be provided. In the past, runners have enjoyed the swimming pool, hot tub and sauna following the race. Additionally, there is volleyball, tennis (bring your own tennis racket), ping-pong, and pool, as well as a dance. All runners are invited to stay and enjoy these activities after the race.


Don’t forget to bring a towel. At any nudist facility, proper etiquette requires the placement of a towel between you and anything you sit upon. Because of this, you’ll notice a towel draped over the shoulder of most nudists as they walk around the resort. That is why the towel became known as the “only” true article of nudist clothing. In addition, it’s useful to have that towel around to dry off after you enjoy the shower, pool, or hot tub.


Enjoy the entire weekend including tenting Friday and Saturday evenings for and additional $55 plus tax  (covers individual, couple, or family).

Call us at (940) 627-2313 or email us to reserve your tent site for this fun weekend. RV Site extra.
