Austin Santa Speedo Run


In 2007, 2008, and 2009 Team Santa Speedo rocked the Trail of Lights 5k Fun Run!

On Saturday, December 12th 2009, Team Santa Speedo ran for the third time at the Trail of Lights fun run being held in Zilker Park. Based on similar events in Toronto and Boston, there's a reason it's called a Santa Speedo Run. We wear red, white or green Speedos for the event, along with Santa hats, reindeer horns, and other festive attire. Chilly? Probably. Chafing? Possibly. Friggin hysterical and a once in a lifetime opportunity? Definitely.

It's also an informal fundraiser for Out Youth, a non-profit organization whose mission is to support and provide services to gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth ages 12 to 19 in Austin and Central Texas. We're asking Team Santa Speedo members to do some fundraising and donate $25 (or more!) directly to this organization to help them continue their good work.

So come next time and help celebrate the season, raise some money for a really great cause, and show off your fine bod (or not) in some very minimal swimwear... It should be a fun event with the only objective being to do some good while making complete and utter spectacles of ourselves.
