They're running for charity. And to stay warm.

The Santa Speedo Sprint is one of the most fun events of each year. And this weekend was no exception. It was great to see so many people smiling, laughing, and cheering others on.

There's a big bunch of photos from this year's sprint after the jump...

+ Here's a good photoset from Sebastien, which includes this great shot (and Mary being followed by Beaker).

+ Bennett divided his photos into two sets: the sprint itself -- and afterward. Also: his left behind Rudolph noses shot is much better than ours.

+ The TU has a big SEEN gallery from the sprint.

+ The Daily Gazette's Patrick Dodson captured some good moments.

Yep, AOA was a media sponsor of this event.

Comments

Wow, talk about the full spectrum of physical fitness! Bravo to all who participated!

Love the BEAKER MUPPET.

I was there and had a great time. JC was my favorite!

Oh, goodness...that's my partner James (on the right) in Sebastien's photo of those three leaping ladies.

Men of science love Mary.

I had the pleasure of experiencing protected bike lanes in Montreal recently. It really made for a fast, efficient way to move both bike & car traffic. As a biker, it was easy to see how to navigate a busy road, and it was nice to have a bit of buffer/safety from traffic (or just knowing that the possibility of a car swerving in to you was incredibly low because of these features). As a driver, it was nice to see all of the bikes in one area, so that you don't have the errant biker who decides to blow through most of the traffic signals the wrong way down a street.
