‘Nude run’ admin Trevor Randell said he was glad to be involved in the event despite having to take down the page.

“We hope it helped the Jenkins’ family by showing huge support for them,” Mr Randell said.

“We are overwhelmed by the support for the fight for the Australia way.

“As Aussies we are very proud.”

Organiser Mat Ker posted on the page explaining that he did not want to be held responsible for others breaking the law.

“I really didn't expect such a huge response,” Mr Ker said.

“I created this event for a bit of a laugh and as a response to that ridiculous letter, whether it's real or not it was worth having a laugh at.

“I didn't actually intend on the event being a real thing but if people still want to show up it's their choice, I just don't want anyone to break the law.”
