Speedo Santas bare their holiday best in Midtown charity run

Add this share

Men and women clad in Speedos and little else in freezing temperatures bared their holiday best Saturday for the 9th Annual Atlanta Santa Speedo Run.

The 1.5-mile dash though Midtown kicked off from Hudson Grille and raised funds for Bert's Big Adventure.

It's a gay-popular parade of abs that started at Manuel's Tavern in 2009 and we've been there snapping photos every year – 201620152014201320122011 and 2010 too.
