Santas in Speedos Jingle Through Boston


It's that time of year again. Boston's annual Speedo Santa Run took place over the weekend and our reader Patrick Lentz was there again to capture it. This year, the fur Speedo introduced by the Santa in the middle last year seems to have caught on. Also joining the run this year was a rowdy gang from Philadelphia.

Hopefully they just tore up a few of those faux fur throws Pottery Barn is hawking this season rather than slaughter any reindeer or albino squirrels.








Patrick's full set of 2007 Speedo shots is here.

  1. If anyone knows the lean one with the hairy chest in the top photo, put him in touch with me, mkay?

  2. Please, Santa, put the naturally furry one in the middle under my tree, no wrappings required. (Then peterparker and I can tussle over him.)

  3. actually, I am 99% certain that the one you refer to, peterparker went to college with me. Is this a gay event?

  4. This is not a gay event. It's a fun and unique charity event to raise money for the Women’s Lunch Place, a daytime community in Boston for poor and homeless women and their children.

    Each runner is asked to raise at least $250 in donations. The runner who raises the most money will win a ski weekend for two, including lodging and lift tickets, courtesy of WAAF.

    The run starts and ends at a bar called Lir, 903 Boylston Street, Boston. The course is a 1.25 mile jog down Boylston to Berkeley and then back up Newbury.

    I'm sorry I missed it but I was heading to the airport to catch a flight back home. Maybe next year...

  7. They can't be gay, I mean, there's actually *chest hair* on view, not dudes shaved and waxed so that they look like pre-pubescent boys.

    I'd like to order, in the top picture, the guy on the far left with the white headband and especially the guy in the middle. Yowza.

  8. Okay, this might not be a gay event - and I doubt all the guys in these photos are 'mos - but, damn, those two guys on the right of the top photo look super gay. Just a vibe... I am profiling, sorry!

  9. I think most of the guys in the above photos here are straight, but I can tell you that there was more than the 10% gay ratio of gay guys running at this event. Check the link to the entire batch of photos. The more the event progresses and the more booze is consumed, you have a better feel for the gender preference of some of the runners. :o)

  10. Who cares if they're straight or gay? None of you guys is gonna fuck any of them, so it really doesn't much matter.

  11. Haven't been to Boston in decades. Frankly, I still see no reason to go back.
