The 12th annual Santa Speedo Sprint returns to Albany Dec. 16.

The Sanata Speedo Sprint is a fun event that takes place each year presented by the Albany Society for the Advancement of Philanthropy (ASAP) in association with Albany All-Star Roller Derby. The event raises funds for the Albany Damien Center and and the HIV/AIDS program at Albany Medical Center. You can register online or the day of the race for a $25 fee. Pre registration is encourages as only the first 175 people registered are guaranteed a cool race t-shirt. Registration will be from 11am-1:45pm on Dec. 16 at the LionHeart and Oh Bar. Race starts at 2pm. Although billed as a speedo wearing event, speedos aren't necessary to participate. According to the 12th annual Santa Speedo Sprint Eventbrite page, runners wear anything from speedos and bikinis to costumes to three-piece suits.

So get out those speedos and get ready for a fun time in downtown Albany on Dec. 16!
