Lupin Lodge, a clothing-optional resort in Los Gatos, is hosting its first nude 5K -- "Color Me Bare" -- an untimed run on Saturday through the Santa Cruz Mountains. 

"Start in the nude, finish naked and doused in paint!" organizers advertise.

There will be two courses for varying abilities set on the resort's 110 acres -- one more challenging on the hilly nature trails, and the other set on flatter ground.

After the run, participants can enjoy the naked ice cream social, barbeque and live band in the clubhouse restaurant.

The entry fee is $40 per person, $50 at the gate, and an extra $20 for those wishing to sleep over in a tent. Tickets can be purchased here.

(This event does seem to fly directly in the face of the California Public Health Department's recent tick-prevention campaign of "Spray, Tuck, Zip," but more on that here.)

Lupin Lodge is located at 20600 Aldercroft Heights in Los Gatos. Like and follow the resort here on Facebook.

Lupin is a great place. I have been there for other events and it is wonderful. It is definitely rustic if your planning to sleep over but think of it as high class summer camp and you will be very happy when you get there. The people are great. You don't have to be naked either (except at the pool area). You just have to be okay with others being naked. I see a lot of folks in sarongs for example. Women often wear sports bras when they play volleyball. I assume that would be an issue with the run so plan for that. I am not a runner so I won't be there but you all go and have fun!
