What Is Bay to Breakers?

Every third Sunday of May, the citizens of San Francisco, California and their friends get up and get physical for the annual Bay to Breakers marathon. One of the most well-known and well-attended events in Frisco.
Bay to Breakers is the world's largest footrace, attracting more than 110,000 listed participants annually—a number recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records. That's aside from the “bandits” or unregistered runners.
Bay to Breakers started as a communal activity designed to lift the city's spirits and hopes after the disastrous 1906 San Francisco earthquake which flattened down most of the city. Now more than a century old, the marathon is also the longest consecutively run footrace in the world since others' courses and lengths have changed over time.
The name of this marathon reflects the fact that it starts at the north-east end of the down town area a few blocks from The Embarcadero, adjacent to San Francisco Bay. It then runs west through the city to the Great Highway, adjacent to the Pacific coast where breakers crash in the Ocean Beach.
People have to run for 7.46 miles (12 kilometres) to complete the course. Aside from the volume of runners who join the event annually, Bay to Breakers is also well-known for many participants wearing costumes, and some in a varying degrees of public nudity.
