Speedo Sprint 2010 santa's sleigh

Santa has some hearty elves this year.

Updated Monday at 8 pm

This year's Santa Speedo Sprint once again proved the scantily-clad Santa dash is one of the most fun events of the year. It's so great to be in a crowd where so many people are smiling.

And last we heard, ASAP had raised $20,000 for the Albany Damien Center!

Many photos are after the jump.

Was that THE naked cowboy?
It was a great time, and an overall great vibe that afternoon. It ended up being a very pleasant day weather-wise (what lucky runners this year) and everyone was smiling.

Great job to all the fundraisers and participants! And because you know you can't get enough of Santa Speedo goodness, link to some additional photos below.

Re: Summer - It was A naked cowboy, but I don't think it was THE naked cowboy. In either case, he seemed to be quite the popular attraction!

This was not THE naked cowboy- this cowboy had a habit of putting his "package" on many of the lady sprinters. Rumor has it that this cowboy opened that package and showed it to a few women in Oh Bar an hour or so after the sprint.

I was a little weirded out by this cowboy so I googled the actual Naked Cowboy- the Santa Speedo Sprint Cowboy was a fake.

I had a blast at the Sprint, this is my second year participating and my third year there (overall).

it was a gross package at that mellfire. ick @ fake naked cowboy.

Friends just recently found this post and told me about it. We got a good laugh ;)

I am the guy who dressed as the naked cowboy lol
my friends and I had a great time at the event. I assure you I did not
rub my "package" on anyone... At least not on purpose.

Looking forward to this coming year. And no I will not
be naked cowboy again.

Washington Avenue definitely needs more than one lane in each direction, but that doesn't mean it can't be redesigned. They can reduce the size of the lanes, add a median, and add a protected bike lane where the shoulder of the road now lies. I agree, however, that the entire Harriman loop would have to be redesigned and that includes those over-passes, so this would be an extremely expensive undertaking if they want to do it right. But there could be significant development on the land that is now wasted by asphalt that could offset that cost and bulk up the tax base for the city.
