12 Strangest Races in the World

Santa Speedo Run (Boston, MA) 1 of 13

Put together cold weather, skimpy outfits, and some Christmas spirit and you'll get the Santa Speedo Run. This tradition was started in 2000 when a group of five friends showed up and ran through the streets in Speedos and with a boombox playing The Muppets Christmas Carols. The event now draws around 500 participants every year.
