Chicago Santa Speedo Run December 7th
Santa Speedo Run Supporting Center on Halsted
Sign Up to Run or Donate to Support the Local LGBTQ Community
Santa’s suit just got a lot less heavy. On Saturday, Dec. 7th, the Most Fabulous Santa Speedo Run will raise money to support the Center on Halsted. Over 250 community members are expected to brave the cold this year for their annual one-mile run through the heart of Lakeview, clad in nothing more than Santa hats and speedos!
The spectacle is being held at Sidetrack Video Bar, 3349 N Halsted. Registration starts at 12:00pm, the 1 mile run begins at 2:00pm, with entertainment and prizes afterward. Participants are encouraged to wear swimwear and a Santa hat for the event, but it’s not mandatory. In fact, you’ll see a wide array of holiday costumes that are festive and sometimes hilarious! Runners are asked for a minimum $25 donation to participate. Donations may also be made directly to Center on Halsted. The full donation for the event will support Center on Halsted.
