Noon – The Pre-Party
Our check-in and pre-party begin at noon and include a live DJ, cash bar, a costume contest and activities for those 21 and up. Registered runners who raise the minimum $250 will receive a swag bag from our amazing sponsors. Those Super Santas who raise $500 or more also receive an extra stocking stuffer at check-in—a $25 gift card!
2 p.m. – The Run
Participants strip down and jingle their bells along the streets of Midtown.
2:30 p.m. – The After-Party
Winners are announced and awarded prizes—and the party continues until all of the Santas head back to their workshops.
The run starts and ends at Colony Square’s Politan Row in Midtown:
1197 Peachtree St NE Suite 150
Atlanta, GA 30309
We recommend using a ride-sharing service if you plan to booze it up. Even if you don’t, riding with friends is the eco-Santa-ier thing to do. If you decide to drive, there is a parking garage at Colony Square and plenty of street parking. Please be mindful of parking signs and be respectful of the neighbors.
The Atlanta Santa Speedo Run, is open to anyone at least 21 years of age.
Do it for the kids! Duh! Also, prizes are a nice perk to say thank you for your fundraising efforts. Check out this year’s prizes on our registration page.
WHAT TO WEAR?
The dress code boils down to “less is more.” Speedos, swimsuits, costumes and holiday attire are encouraged (but not required)! Feel free to wear street clothes and then strip down to the Speedo attire at runtime. We highly suggest donning some sneakers, too.
WHAT TO BRING?
In addition to your fabulous outfit, bring:
- Any cash or checks with donations collected offline to turn in at the check-in table
- A credit card for the pre- and after-party shenanigans. We’ll also have a credit card machine at registration for last-minute participants.
- DO NOT bring valuables. We have an unsecured area for your clothes and cannot be responsible for your personal belongings.
What if a donor doesn’t want to give online. Can I still get credit?

Do you accept matching gifts and will they count toward my goal?
Yes! Please have your donor file the necessary paperwork on their end. Our address is noted above. Our Federal EIN is 05-0523733.
What happens if I don’t raise the $250 minimum?
The $250 minimum is just a guideline. If you fall short, you will not be charged the difference. That said, we really urge people to raise the minimum. We are trying to raise $50,000 for our beneficiary and we limit the run to 200 folks, so we need each of you to do your very best, as you are potentially taking the spot of a person who would have raised $250. Note: If you do not raise the $250 minimum, you will not be eligible for the goodie bag or any raffles on the day of the event.
Can I register on run day?
Yes! We always have a handful of people who want to participate but have not signed up previously. To be fair to the other Santas, we ask that you make a $250 donation (includes $30 registration fee).
