San Francisco Bay to Breakers

An estimated 60,000 people participated in the Bay to Breakers footrace in San Francisco on Sunday, May 20th, 2007.

The Bay to Breakers is an annual footrace which takes place in San Francisco, California. The name reflects the fact that the race runs from the northeast end of the downtown area near The Embarcadero (the Bay side of the city) to the west end of the city and Ocean Beach (the ocean breakers near the finish line on the Pacific coast). The race is 7.46 miles (12 kilometers) long. Started in 1912 as a way to lift the city's spirits after the disastrous 1906 San Francisco earthquake, it is the longest consecutively running footrace in the world.
