Santa Speedo Run Description

Santa Speedo Run - Holiday Event | Running in Boston.

The Santa Speedo Run is an annual holiday tradition held in December beginning and ending at the Lir Tavern in Boston, Massachusetts. Located in the Back Bay neighborhood of Boston, Lir is an Irish pub that serves as the focal point of the run and is convenient for its proximity to Newbury Street which is the shopping hub of Boston.

Starting in 2000 with five men wearing Santa hats and speedos running down Newbury Street to the tune of cheers and applause for the brave holiday spirit, the Santa Speedo Run is now a holiday staple for Bostonians. Starting with a pre-game to work up courage, the 500 runners depart from the pub and embark on their mile-long jog sporting nothing but speedos and festive hats. There is a post-run party at Lir to celebrate the success of everyone’s runs.

Santa Speedo Run registration is limited to people 21+ years of age and requires a $30 fee along with a commitment to raise at least $400 for charity. Throughout the years, the Santa Speedo Run has raised over a million dollars for various local charities.
