Some nice person from Bay To Breakers asked me to post the following info
The 98-year old ING Bay to Breakers 12K is one of the world’s largest and oldest footraces, held annually in San Francisco, California. 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 7.46 mile (12 kilometer) race features world-class athletes in addition to costumed runners and ‘fun-loving’ folks out for a great day of running and walking through San Francisco.
Participants are encouraged to show their respect and support of the race by registering for the event. Online registration is now open. Registration fees provide the infrastructure for the race, including race organization and set-up, permits, security, portable toilets, dumpsters, and post-race clean up and recycling. By registering, participants ensure that the race continues year to year.
In addition, we earmark funds from registration fees to support numerous beneficiaries in the Bay Area, including BREATHE California and the San Francisco Unified School District. Since 2003, ING Bay to Breakers 12K has donated nearly $350,000 to our beneficiaries.
