Run the 2017 Bay to Breakers
In true San Francisco fashion, the city looked for ways to boost morale and unite the city after the devastating earthquake and subsequent fire in 1906. With these plans in mind, Cross City Race (original name for Bay to Breakers) was born and first held on January 1, 1912 with 218 runners. Today, we are joined by more than 50,000 spirited participants.
From the colorful costumes – to the World Centipede Championships – to the “upstream swimming salmon,” Bay to Breakers encapsulates more than 105 years of rich history and quirky traditions. Here’s to the 106th year, and keeping our proud claim of being one of the longest consecutively run annual footraces in the world.
I'll run with the best of them, running 12K race and for each dollar raised I'll match it. So get out your wallets and get ready to donate.
