PHOTOS: Sexy Santas Bare The Cold To Race Across Chicago In Nothing But Skivvies



Even the winter freeze could stop these Chicagoans from running down the streets of East Lakeview, covered only in skivvies and running shoes. Starting at the one of the nation’s largest gay bars, Sidetrack, where liquid courage was imbibed, the third annual Speedo Run–one of a growing number of similar events nationwide–drew scores of ballsy guys to strip down and sprint, and even more onlookers to watch out the frost chilled windows of surrounding Boystown bars.  The run raised money for this years charity The Center On Halsted and had nearly 250 registered runners.

Check out pictures from this year’s run below, and see how it stacks up to the 2012 Chicago Santa Speedo Run
