The Bay To Breakers 12K is one of the world’s largest and oldest footraces, held annually in San Francisco, California, USA, on the third Sunday of May, since 1912. The name reflects the traditional course which takes tens of thousands of participants 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 the “breakers” of Ocean Beach. The complete course is 7.46 miles (12.01 km) long. The event is well known for many participants wearing costumes.
The race is held on a USA Track & Field certified point-to-point course. The event was officially the world’s largest footrace from 1986 (with 110,000 participants) until it was surpassed in 2010.
