New World Record For Biggest Nude Run
Stoke Travel to set new world record for biggest nude run in Pamplona, Spain
On July 7, during the 2016 San Fermines festival in Pamplona, Spain, tour operator Stoke Travel will be hosting a massive nude run in an attempt to set a new world record. Starting from Bar Zuhaitza (renamed the Stoke Bar during the festival), the run of thousands of nudes will loop the town hall before returning to the bar. The bare bums will be out on the afternoon of the first day of the bull run as an alternative pass-time to watching a bullfight, explained Stoke.
“Stoke The world’s biggest bunch of travellers aim to set the unofficial world record for ‘biggest naked run through Pamplona’,” commented Toby Paramor, CEO of the Stoke Travel Co. “We love the San Fermines festival but we don’t love some aspects of it, so we reckon there’s no need to torture bulls to be a part of it… better we just join in on the party and torture our own senses of pride instead!”
Stoke has been hosting guests at their festival campsites for the Running of the Bulls, San Fermines festival for the past ten years. They provide all-inclusive accommodation, meals and drinks for over 1800 travellers to Pamplona each year, with their main target market being backpackers and travellers who like to let their hair down and meet like-minded internationals (read open-minded). Previously based in Zarautz, one hour from Pamplona, Stoke has now moved to a Pamplona campsite, with the option of a stay at the Zarautz Beach Camp to relax and learn how to surf.
Stoke buses operate from Barcelona and San Sebastian regularly, bringing people to and from the festival. There are also daily transfers between the Bulls Camp in Pamplona and the Beach Camp in Zarautz as well as package deals for all locations. Stoke provides camping accommodation in pre-erected tents with mattresses and sleeping bags included, as well as breakfast and dinner daily, and fun, crazy staff to guide the party.
Stoke expects the nude run to be a big hit. “We offer unlimited beer and sangria for a tenner a day and we often spontaneously and all too publicly end up getting our gear off. Someone always starts it, and the freedom is contagious. Call it a riotous celebration of liberty, if you will,” explained Paramor. And this time they will take a more organised approach to that ‘liberty’. “The first person back to the bar wins a Stoke Travel Passport and massive bragging rights. Stoke is renowned for their massive campsite parties, our theatrical set-up, our irreverent and unserious attitude and their knack for being the biggest festival outside the festival. So if you don’t like the idea of running with bulls, run with us dickheads instead.”
