The Naked Run of Roskilde
But I would like to see the Roskilde Naked Run.
Roskilde, Denmark, about a half hour from Copenhagen by train, has been the site of a famous music festival since 1971.
Beginning on the last Thursday in June or the first Thursday in July, it lasts for four days, with over 100 bands, vendors, camping, and 100,000 participants.
the official website.
Most people arrive on the Sunday before the festival, when the 200-acre campground opens, for the four-day warmup.
Every year since 1999, Roskilde Festival Radio has organized a naked run, or Nøgenløb, on the Saturday of the festival.
Hundreds of nude people sprint around the campground to win tickets to next year's festival. Since there are only two tickets available for hundreds of runners, most are just in it for the fun, and to see things bouncing around.
From the photos, it looks like there's considerable flappage and only a little shrinkage.
