Nearly Naked Mile

The Nearly Naked Mile is a coat drive benefit event for families in the Morehead community. Faculty, staff, students and community members are encouraged to donate new or unwanted coats. Coats appropriate for children are given to the Rowan County Family Resource Center in Morehead for distribution. Dress coats are donated to Career Services to assist students who need a nice coat for an interview or professional event. Coats can be dropped off at the Palmer Development House (358 University St.) year-round.

Every year race participants are bold and cold during the one mile race to help raise awareness of the need for coats for our youth. To participate in the race, runners must bring a coat. All race participants and spectators who donate a coat the evening of the event receive a free t-shirt. Awards are given to first, second and third place finishers as well as other prizes.

Participants in the Nearly Naked Mile can come dressed in costume or in comfortable running clothes. “Nearly” Naked means clothing is required.
