Bay to Breakers, San Francisco’s celebrated 12k race, returns on May 31, 2020! If you’re new here, you should know we do things a little differently. Throw on a costume (the more bizarre, the better), toss a tortilla (they’re not for eating), and prepare for a running experience like no other.

It’s So Pretty! (And then Cool. And Then Pretty Again.)

Bay to Breakers starts in the Embarcadero neighborhood by the San Francisco Bay, and takes you through nine of the city’s most notable neighborhoods—all the way to the Great Highway, where the breakers crash into Ocean Beach.

It’s All Historic!

This race has been around the block a few times: Runners, walkers, joggers, and partiers have participated in Bay to Breakers for over a century. While no racer has had the distinction of running every year since its inception—remember, we said “over a century”—the race has welcomed runners from ages 1 to 99 . (Spoiler: The baby did not win.)

It’s Fun!

From the tortilla toss at the starting line to the last walker who crosses the finish line on stilts, Bay to Breakers is a celebration of life, laughter, and the personality of San Francisco. Join the pink-ape mascot Ape Hashbury, bumblebees, brides, unicorns, naked runners wearing Garmins, and probably at least one Thanos in this world-renowned race-slash-party.

It’s Relaxed! (Until It Isn’t)

Enjoy a flat course through some of San Francisco’s most iconic neighborhoods—until you reach Hayes Street Hill at the two-mile mark. This monster hill rises over 200 feet above sea level, with a steepest grade of 11.15%. (Runner’s World named it one of its top “Sublime Climbs,” so it can’t be all bad, right?)

You’ll Be, Like, Famous!

Love having people gaze upon you in adoration? 80,000 spectators, volunteers, and staff line the race course each year, adding up to 160,000 eyeballs on your form, your costume, and your incredible speed.
