Runners jingle their charity bells for Atlanta Santa Speedo Run

Add this share

For the 12th year, there were scantily clad holiday do-gooders running through the chilly Midtown streets on Saturday. Benefitting Bert’s Big Adventure, the one-mile run attracted people raising money to sport their best Speedo Santa looks.

Prizes went to runners and teams for the most money raised, as well as for several best costume categories. The party at Politan Row Colony Square continued well after the run. That’s where our cameras caught the fun in our gallery below.
