Ho Ho Hos: Boston's Santa Speedo Run

Ssr1

No, this is not some kind of crazy promotion for Jarhead, although Jake Gyllenhaal may have been hard to spot among all these semi-naked Santas.

It's the annual Santa Speedo Run which took place in Boston on Saturday. We couldn't make it this year or last year, but Towleroad correspondent Patrick L sent us some exclusive photos of the event to share with you.

I strongly recommend that every city take up this tradition.

  3. Don't know when it is here in New York--but I happily found myself surrounded by briefs-wearing runners around Tompkins Square Park last year.

  10. Well thank you Seth from VH1's Kept, he and his buddies created this event...

    And it looks sooo gay friendly. I don't see Seth there this year though, in the pictures that is... I adore Seth's charming smile and rude behaviour. Don't you?

  13. All I want for Christmas is a visit from some of these Santas after I get to sit on their laps! Thanks for the great pics!

  14. Doesn't have random hotness pass through cold zones cause major hurricanes?

    Oh, well. It'd be worth it!

  15. >>semi-naked Santas

    Some things ought to be "Banned in Boston".

    As your photo layout proves, Speedos are rarely worn in public, and there's a very good reason for that. Hardly any man looks good in one. Of course, to be fair, they were designed for speed in the water, not as a fashion statement.

    Not coincidentally, the guys who look good in them would look good naked, fully dressed, or coated in white chocolate and rolled in toffee bits.

    Since it's a fundraiser for Breast Cancer, it's definitely a praise-worthy effort, and I guess we should be able to tolerate a few overstuffed bikinis for a good cause. Still, this is decidedly an example of the good, the bad, and the ugly.

    Bravo to the brave souls who participated.

  16. I think you should mention it is for charity and not just some dumb stunt.

  17. That Jay fellow needs to grow up.

  18. Seriously Jay, stop being such a fun sponge!!!

  19. My only complaint is that it looks like most of the participants were closer to elves than to Santa.

    Insert overdone candy-cane/chimney euphemism here.

  20. Complaining about seeing guys in Speedos is lame. They've got more guts than you, whether or not they look "perfect."

  21. Ugh,
    the Elvis lookin Santa got a "porkchop" belly!
