Speedo Santas Storm San Francisco

Speedo Santas 4About twenty runners sporting only Speedos, running shoes, and Santa Hats sent people scrambling for their cameras in the Castro.

The “Speedo Santa” fun run was an event organized by Tyler Cole and Team SF.

“There’s a lot of fun runs like this around the country and I thought well if you’re going to have a Speedo run any where in the country we should do it here in San Francisco,” Cole said.

Runners collected pledges which benefited the San Francisco AIDS Foundation.

“I’m still asking myself why I’m doing this,” runner James Loduca said, “I work for the San Francisco AIDS foundation so it seemed like the thing to do.”

The Lookout bar on Market Street also donated some liquor sales for the day to Team SF.

Cole said they will use that money to help send athletes to the 2010 Gay Games in Cologne, Germany.

“It’s just about getting athletes to participate in the Gay Games,” Cole said, “It’s been one of my passions my whole life to get people involved in Gay and Lesbian sports.”
