The Albany Society for the Advancement of Philanthropy (ASAP) in association with Albany All-Stars Roller Derby is pleased to present the 13th Annual Santa Speedo Sprint!

The race will be held in conjunction with A Taste of Lark: Chili & Chowder Edition.

What is the Santa Speedo Sprint?

The Santa Speedo Sprint is an 800-meter run on Lark Street to raise money for the Albany Damien Center and the HIV/AIDS program at Albany Medical Center.

You do not have to wear a speedo - runners wear everything from speedos and bikinis to holiday-themed costumes to three-piece suits.

How to Register & Additional Details

You can register online or in person. Register early to get a t-shirt. A minimum donation of $25 is asked, although higher donations are encouraged in the spirit of the event and the holidays.

Registration will take place between 11am and 1:45pm at The Lionheart and Oh Bar. The race will begin at 2pm at the Dunkin Donuts on Lark Street.
