What the Santa Speedo Sprint Is

The Santa Speedo Sprint is an 800-meter run on Lark Street to raise money for the Albany Damien Center and the HIV/AIDS program at Albany Medical Center.

You do not have to wear a speedo - runners where everything from speedos and bikinis to holiday-themed costumes to three-piece suits.
