Bay to Breakers Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"After the 1906 earthquake and ?re destroyed most of San Francisco, the city was in need of a major morale boost. As repairing and rebuilding began, the city created events to cheer up despondent San Franciscans.

As a prelude to world-class athletic events to be held at the Panama Paci?c Exposition in 1915, the ?rst Cross City Race took place on January 1, 1912, with 186 runners and 121 ?nishers. Now known as Bay to Breakers—and run in May—the race has become a tradition with 40,000 to 50,000 registered participants each year."
