Everything You Need to Know About Bay to Breakers
Bay to Breakers' historic race is here to stay! The 2023 Bay to Breakers will take place on Sunday, May 21, 2023.
Bay to Breakers is an only-in-San Francisco freewheeling footrace for those who want to have fun, be a bit wacky, and run (or walk) across town. Known for its festive, party atmosphere, it is one of the world's oldest footraces. Starting at The Embarcadero (the "bay" side of the city), runners traverse the hills of San Francisco to the western side of the city, ending at the "breakers" of Ocean Beach. Held on the third Sunday in May, Bay to Breakers combines serious competitors with costumed participants, plus thousands of spectators lining the route. (Sometimes, watching is the best part!)
