It’s a beloved tradition in the Capital City, now in its 17th year. Albany’s Santa Speedo Sprint took over Lark Street on December 10, 2022.
Hundreds of scantily clad santas, elves, wooden soldiers and even sharks braved the near freezing temperatures to run down Lark Street and back. The run raises thousands each year to support the HIV/AIDS program at Albany Med as well as the Albany Damien Center.
