A group of female hikers were shocked by a 'friendly-looking' naked jogger who ran past them on their trek.
The group of women were on a 24-mile trek when the man ran past them in just socks, boots and a watch, and called out: “It’s quiet up there.”
Leading the 20-strong female group on the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge was personal trainer Mia Oldroyd, who says they had tackled Pen-y-ghent and Whernside and were heading up Ingleborough in the Dales when they encountered the man .

“It troubled my friend Kate who ordered us to jump into a bush," said Mia.
“But he seemed friendly enough, although it was a little strange.
"He must’ve been freezing.”
Helen Newall, one of the walkers, added: "It was nearing sunset and pretty cold — he certainly wasn't shy though.
"One of the girls pointed out that he couldn’t have done a lot of naked running judging by his white bum and legs.”

The man appeared to be enjoying his naked run but Steve Clough, of Swaledale Mountain Rescue Team, urged others not to follow birthday suit.
He said: “With winter approaching we'd advise walkers and runners visiting the Yorkshire Dales to wear the appropriate clothing for the conditions."
The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge is a 24 mile (38.6km) route, which includes 1585m (5200ft) of ascent, and takes on the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, usually in this order, and in under 12 hours.
