About Bay to Breakers:
Every year since 1912, the Bay to Breakers 12K has taken place in the heart of San Francisco. The race starts a few blocks from the Embarcadero next to the bay, through the streets, on to Golden Gate Park and finishing up at Ocean Beach.
The first race, held on January 1, 1912, was one of many civic events staged to boost morale in the aftermath of the destruction of the city in the 1906 earthquake and subsequent fire. This San Francisco Event has grown exponentially since its first run in the early 20th century. The first race included only 218 runners. Today, more than 50,000 runners register each year.
If you plan to participate, you can register online. On May 15th and 16th there is an expo at Fort Mason Center where you can pick up your runner’s packet. The Expo will also showcase current fitness technology, equipment and nutrition.
Bay to Breakers race organizers recommend that you arrive at the starting line an hour before the 8 a.m. start time. The race has partnered with Under Armor, and each runner will receive an Under Armor race shirt and a medal for finishing the race.
Runners must cross the finish line by 12pm in order to make the official finishers’ list and receive a medal. If you’re looking for a fun San Francisco Event to take part in while you’re in town, consider the historic Bay to Breakers 12K race.
