You can dress them up, but they're still going to be burly rugby jocks. And that was exactly the point of the Purple Dress Run from the Atlanta Bucks on Saturday.
The gay ruggers hosted it again, shifting the start of the 11th annual event to Cowtippers for the first time. From there, the drag-clad participants jogged and power walked their way to Burkhart's, Blake's and Ten before finishing at the Eagle with a party and prizes.
The event raises funds for the Bucks and also benefitted For the Kid in All of Us.
Enjoy photos from past years of the event – 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010 and 2009.
