Our 31 favorite Atlanta Santa Speedo Run packages

Add this share

It’s that time again. Time for all those gay holiday jocks to brave the cold in nothing but Speedos for a good cause. We dip into Christmas packages past to psyche up for this year’s Atlanta Santa Speedo Run.

The sixth annual nearly naked jaunt through Midtown Atlanta takes place on Saturday. The pre- and post-party  at Hudson Grille Midtown is as much a draw for gawkers as it is for runners, so be sure to get an eyeful wish them well.  Who knows, you might even strike up a brisk bromance.

And be sure to donate to your favorite participants as well. It’s an event that touches your heart as well as other body parts. This year’s fun run benefits Everybody Wins! Atlanta, a citywide literacy program. So not everyone who participates is gay, but pretty much everything about the event is. Nine of Santa Speedo's Top 10 fundraisers this year are members of the LGBT tribe, and that’s just a fraction of those who signed up to strip down. In addition to individuals, the gay teams are out in force.

As in every bulging year to date, we are so there. That means we are uniquely positioned to offer jiggling jingle bell visions that add flair to their frisky fundraising. When you’re done here, be sure to check out more than 1,000 photos in galleries from past Santa Speedos herehereherehere and here.  Fine, you horndog. Ogle just our picks for the hunkiest hunks from 20132012, 2011, and 2010. Here are 45 shots of exactly how we like a little Santa served with our Speedo.

Smells like team spirit.



Team McDreamy



Team McSteamy



Team McThemey



Men in Black



Stand out in a crowd.



Leather-Levi Realness.



It's see-through, so maybe don't (or do!) wear white.




Don't miss those marketing opportunities.



And dynamic duos.



Come one, come all and scarf it up.



Just follow the bouncing balls.



Or other attractions.
