The Santa Speedo Sprint is this weekend

Santas

Proper attire required.

Here's a heads-up for the weekend: the Albany Society's annual Santa Speedo Sprint is this Saturday.

What, you may ask, is the Santa Speedo Sprint? Well, we could tell you about it -- but pictures from last year will really tell the story better. The proceeds from the sprint go toward supporting the Albany Damien Center.

This year's event starts "around 2 pm" on Saturday on Lark Street (get there a little early). It's a good time. And, you know, there's still time to sign up...

AOA is one of the media sponsors of this year's sprint -- that's why you've been seeing ads on the site.

I have not the balls nor speedo to compete.

My egg nog belly did this two years ago and it was such great fun. Definately take a shot before running in the cold though.

Got my costume ready - can't wait!!!!!

I'll be there! 25 degrees with 15 MPH winds. Awesome.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.

Mine is a plug-in hybrid, and so perhaps I didn't have as much angst about this question as I might have with a wholly electric vehicle, but I had full confidence in Larry's Foreign Auto from their work on my prior vehicle, and they were not daunted by a hybrid. ...
