Watch Santa Speedo Run deliver these sexy packages

Add this share

Of everything local gay men count on each year, the Atlanta Santa Speedo Run may be the sexiest. When guys strip down and jingle their bells through Midtown, we snap pics each year. It’s just what we do.

The seventh annual nearly naked jaunt through Midtown takes place on Saturday. Thepre- and post-partyat Manuel’s Tavern is as much a draw for gawkers as it is for runners, so be sure to drop by and wish them well.

But it’s not just for the eye candy alone that gay Atlanta loves the Speedo Run. Each year’s event benefits a different charity. Proceeds from the 2015 run go to Blaze Sports, which helps kids and adults with disabilities through adaptive sporting activities. What’s more nine of Santa Speedo'sTop 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, thegay teamsare out in force.

And if your super power is snapping pics gay Atlanta loves, and you do it for five years running, you compile quite an extensive archive. Sp we've mined our resources to give you this one-of-a-kind preview before the big event. Enjoy.

When you’re done here, be sure to check out more than 1,100 photos in galleries from every last Atlanta Santa Speedo Runhere,here,here,here,hereandhere.Fine, you horndog. Ogle just our picks for the hunkiest hunks from2013,2012,2011, and2010.

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 marketing opportunities.

And dynamic duos.

Come one, come all and scarf it up.

Or join the weather-appropriate sidelines. Still fun.

Just follow the bouncing balls.

Or other attractions.
