Naked cross-country run is huge success
win gets a free ticket for next year’s festival.
Local anthropologist Mikkel Bang Fossum said: “The Danish, like most Scandanavians, are not shy about their bodies.
“The nude run at Roskilde is now very much part of the fabric of the event and the competitors all enjoy taking part. It’s a great way to get the festival off to a fun start and it has every festival-goer eagerly cheering on from the sidelines.
“That might be because they’re getting into the spirit of the festival, but it could just as easily be because they’re enjoying seeing lots of naked flesh, too!”
