Bay to Breakers

San Francisco’s Bay to Breakers is one of the oldest consecutively run annual footraces in the world, a staple to the City by the Bay since May 1912. With a starting point near the San Francisco Bay, a few blocks from The Embarcadero, the 12K race runs west through the city and finishes at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto the Pacific Coast’s Ocean Beach. A quintessential San Francisco experience for 105 years, the race is interwoven into the fabric of the city and is a true reflection and celebration of life between the breakers and the Bay. The 2017 edition will take place on Sunday, May 21.


Please note that no alcohol and no wheeled devices (including floats) will be allowed on the race course during Bay to Breakers. Violators will be removed from the race course immediately and will not be issued a refund.
