Santa Speedo Run

  • Briggs Bar 519 East Jefferson Detroit, MI (map)

Get your jingle bells ready! Put on your skimpy suit*, or just some zany Santa costumes--be comfortable, but sexy-fun! Open to men and women of all shapes and sizes.

Briggs Bar is back for their third year!! Year one had 4 runners, year two had 37. We are hoping for 75+ runners this year. Briggs is teaming up with us, The Greening of Detroit and Ruth Ellis Center. No need to be in great shape- it's a mile run through downtown, starting and ending at Briggs Detroit. It’s a one (1) mile run. You got this!!!

Meet up for drinks at 12 noon; the run starts at 2:00

The Greening Staff will be on hand to man the taps

NEW THIS YEAR- The Schvitz (www.schvitzdetroit.com) invites all runners over after the run for a unique steam experience at half-price. Get your special pass the day of after the run. Thanks, Paddy and the good folks at The Schvitz.
