Bay to Breakers

Bay to Breakers Corral 2010

When & Where The Bay to Breakers usually occurs around mid-May in San Francisco California.

Eh..what is it? It's a 12 kilometer run in San Fran. There's also the SWA Costume Competition - people win prizes for dressing up or in some cases dressing down! Up to 80,000 people take place every year and since its inception this footrace has run every year. The event is flushed out over a couple of hours as runners are sorted into groups of corrals.

Bay-to-Breakers-Naked-Runners Bay-Breakers route From sea level at the Embarcadero the course rises steeply along Hayes Street Hill. Around the 2.5-mile mark runners climb an 11.15% grade between Fillmore and Steiner, bringing them to the highest point in the race, approximately 215 feet above sea level. The remainder of the course gradually flows downhill alongside the Panhandle and through Golden Gate Park.
