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.

The state of our roads makes it too dangerous for me to want to use my bike to go to work. It's scary enough to walk/jog around town and have people fly through stop signs/lights when I'm using intersections... and on a bike it's that much worse if you attempt to bike legally in the street. This would be a great start to making our community more safe in general. We have to start somewhere.
