Santa Speedo 2008 – Hot to trot

Some of this years runners

Some of the 2008 speedo runners

The 2nd Austin Santa Speedo to raise awareness for Austin based appears to have a blast, there were more than double last years runners. It’s understandable that people are a little self conciousness but you really are invisible in a crowd of some 4,500 odd.

Ed(Head Santa) and I(CEO, Chief Elf Officer) hope to get the numbers up over the next couple of years to the point we can organize our our direct fundraising event/run. Until then we’ll keep going with the Santa Speedo at the Trail of Lights 5k. Mark your calendars for 2009, come on down, don’t be shy.

Before you ask, most of us are straight, except for the GBF’s who were racing for the 2nd year; you don’t have to have cancer to raise money for it etc. Many of us can completely understand and the need for people to support confused teens at their most vulnerable times, if you enjoy Jasons video and the run, why not donate just a few dollars to outyouth?
They accept paypal etc.

A big thanks this year to Guin for getting Brian, Krista and the Texas State Triathlon team up from San Marcos. Also to Jason for the video. There are more pictures on flickr, here. This year and last years videos are here. The Texas State team also have some pictures on facebook, here.
