Things to Do in San Francisco This Weekend
Bay to Breakers Race
Of all of San Francisco’s unique traditions, none captivates the entire city the way Bay to Breakers does. This year’s race is May 19, 2019. It’s an annual testament to the creativity, community, and resilience that make San Francisco such a popular destination. The race began in 1912 and is now recognized as the longest consecutively run foot race in the world. It is also one of the most creative. Whether it’s a pink gorilla or a cadre of runners dressed as Wonder Woman, participants try to outdo one another by crafting some truly outrageous costumes every year. Need some inspiration? Here are a few of our favorites. Registration is now open. These are some of the best areas to stay in San Francisco for Bay to Breakers.
