This year marks the 11th annual Santa Speedo Sprint! The Santa Speedo Sprint is an 800 meter run taking place at 2pm on Lark Street. The cost to register is $25, with net proceeds to benefit the Albany Damien Center and the HIV/AIDS program at Albany Medical Center. Register online or between 11am and 1:45pm on December 10th at The Lionheart or Oh Bar.

You do not have to wear a speedo - runners wear everything from speedos to bikinis to costumes to suits! If you're not running, come out and enjoy the fun, and consider a donation.

There will also be restaurant and bar specials, promotions from retail shops, and live music. Kick off the holiday season on Lark Street in downtown Albany!
