Annual ‘Bay To Breakers’ footrace in San Francisco boasts century-long history


People who reside in the Bay Area are likely familiar with the revelrous footrace that is hosted on the streets of San Francisco on the third Sunday of May every year — as well as the crazy attire that comes along with it. However, few people know that the race has a rich history that spans back over 100 years, making it the longest consecutively run race in the world.

The event’s director of operations shares more about the history of the race, how it has evolved and what people can expect from Bay To Breakers 2015, which is on May 17.
