why people love

It’s a not running race, but a festival!

"This is one of the funnest race in the world. It’s a not running race, but a festival. So, you can run, walk, and drink! I highly recommend you if you want to have a fun during running. You’ll be sure to want to join the race again!"

the pure joy of a 12K long party

"This race is more about the journey than the finish line. It’s people watching, crazy costumes, and the pure joy of a 12K long party! Highly recommended for the experience and memories!"

a great time start to finish

"By far this has been my favorite race I’ve done! Bay to Breakers has it all. The runners are there to party and have a great time start to finish. The shirt is great, the medals are fantastic. Hayes hill is no joke. But the crowds along the course cheered everyone on. It was so much fun. Well organized, fun course. This race is a must!"
