Ready! Set! Sprint!
It's back! And more, ahem, festive than ever! The 13th Annual Santa Speedo Sprint this Saturday, December 15th!
The 800-meter run on Lark Street is presented by The Albany Society of the Advancement of Philanthropy (ASAP), in association with the Albany All-Star Roller Derby and raises money for the Albany Damien Center and the HIV/AIDS program at Albany Medical Center.
You do not have to wear a speedo - runners wear everything from speedos to bikinis to costumes to suits! There will also be restaurant and bar specials, promotions from retail shops, and live music!
And yes, that's our event organizers (Jim Larson (l) and Jasen VonGuinness (r)) in the bottom right photo! Happy Holidays to all! And to all a good sprint!
