The 18th annual SSRun will take place on Saturday, December 8, 2018!!

The SSRun is a fun, unique and crowd-pleasing fundraising event like no other you have experienced. It began in Boston in 2000 with 5 guys just looking to spread some holiday spirit by running through Back Bay in only Santa hats and Speedos. Since then it has grown to include 700 men and women each year and has become an annual holiday tradition that has hosted thousands of participants who have helped to raise nearly $2 million for local children in need. 

Check out the rest of our site to learn more about the event, how you can get involved and how you can help us raise money for the Play Ball! Foundation, a terrific organization that provides Boston middle school students with a chance to play and build friendships and character through the lessons of sport - teamwork, communication and discipline. 

WHY

To participate in a fun and unique charity event to raise money for the Play Ball! Foundation.


ATTIRE

Here's what you'll need the day of the run:


  • Obviously, a Speedo-like bathing suit is required. Holiday colors are preferred. Please, no thongs! We know you have the body to pull it off, so why prove what's obvious?

  • Sneakers

  • Santa hat, beard, and other holiday flair at your discretion

  • A bag to put your clothes in while running

  • Copy of your registration email

  • Pledge sheet with any donations collected offline

Wear your Speedo under your street clothes so that you can just strip down to the Speedo at runtime.
