Star Ranch 5K Races

Star Ranch has hosted the “Bare Buns Run 5K” in the spring every year since 1997. The event is so popular that it is listed as a “Top Running Race” in Texas by RunnerClick.com. We generally have 130 to 160 runners in the competition, which is a qualifying race for the AANR-SW 5K Series. Due to the popularity of this event, ANNR-SW asked us to host a second 5K event each year – now named the “Chilly Cheeks 5K Run” and is run in the autumn.


On October 9, 2021 the third annual “Chilly Cheeks 5K Run” returns! We enjoyed an exceptional spring run earlier this year (the Bare Buns 5K) and we are expecting an even better turn out this fall.

Enjoy a rural run through “Star Ranch” in McDade, Texas, 30  minutes east of Austin on US Hwy 290. The course winds its way around pastures and through woodland trails for approximately three kilometers before entering the developed portion of the ranch. The final two kilometers are on the sand and gravel paths connecting the cottages and cabins owned by our members. The race finishes at our gorgeous pool where you can enjoy a light meal off the grill while awaiting race results.

Star Ranch is the final stop of the 2021 A.A.N.R. Southwest Nude Racing series but you need not have participated in any other race to run here. All our runs are “clothing optional” meaning wear as much or as little as you like. All runners must be pre-registered and we do conduct background checks on all our guests to ensure a safe environment is maintained at all times.

At Star Ranch, we pride ourselves on 63 years of hospitality serving the nudist community of central Texas. Explore the web site for more information on the Ranch and the other activates we host throughout the year

We look forward to seeing you on Race Day – October 9, 2021!

Parking opens at 9:00 AM – the Chilly Cheeks 5K starts at 1:00 PM.


Star Ranch needs people to assist with this event and really appreciates all the time and effort each and every volunteer contributes.
