The results are in! After a tight race with thousands of votes cast, Bay to Breakers is proud to announce the name of our official mascot, Ape Hashbury!

Ape Hasbury is named in honor of one of San Francisco’s most iconic districts, Haight-Ashbury. The winning name was submitted by Oakley resident Ryan Ng. “I wanted to give the gorilla a name that was indigenous to the city and the race”, said Ng. Ryan will take home a VISA gift card as well as the prestigious honor of bestowing the name for the Bay to Breakers legend.

Ape Hashbury has a big year ahead in 2014 and you can join him on his journey leading up to the 2014 Bay to Breakers race. “A-Hash” has already registered, have you? Sign up today!
