X-Rated Run Moved to Miami! Porn Stars and Mud-Wrestling Pits Coming to Virginia Key
In October, we told you about the X-Rated Run, a sex-positive, adults-only 5K coming to Florida. On the agenda: porn stars, pole dancing, and even sex-themed obstacles along the course, including a "climbing boob wall."

The only downside: The run was set to take place in Central Florida, far from Miami's horny athletes.
Well, cheer up, you randy runners. X-Rated Run organizers have moved the event to Virginia Key, bringing with it all the fetishy fun first advertised.
"The X-Rated Run celebrates physical fitness and sexual health, and I am elated to find a location that recognizes the value of our event," organizer and founder Kelly Perez said in a statement. "Since its establishment, the Historic Virginia Key Beach Park has been a progressive monumental site in Florida's history. We are pleased to have the inaugural X-Rated Run at this culturally relevant, tropical paradise."
Organizers are staying mum on the reason for the run's move from Daytona Beach to Miami, saying only that they reached a new deal with the city that led them to switch venues. That might be a major turnoff for seasoned Miami runners, especially the ones who flock to wacky theme events. It wasn't so long ago, after all, that the highly anticipated ZMBLND 5K disappointed the bulk of its attendees with delays, understaffing, toilet troubles, and other general mismanagement.
Many Miami runners are sticking to tried-and-true races. But until now, no race has offered the, uh, unique benefits of the X-Rated Run. Obstacles have been eroticized, with names like Dominatrix Dungeon, G-String Crawl, and Blue Balls Dash. At the finish line, runners will find beer, adult star appearances, live music, and food. Oddly enough, nudity is not allowed at the X-Rated Run, but that won't stop live mud-wrestling and pole-dancing contests.
And the medal? Yeah, it's shaped like a condom. All you have to do is finish, if you know what we mean.
This celebration of sex also has charity at its heart. The X-Rated Run will donate a portion of its proceeds to Clitoraid, a nonprofit association that aims to build a "pleasure hospital" in Burkina Faso, West Africa. The goal is to offer free medical services for the physical restoration and rehabilitation of female genital mutilation victims.
The run is now scheduled for Saturday, May 31. Individual registration costs $65, or $60 if you register as part of an
orgy team. Visit xratedrun.com.
