Route information
The Bay to Breakers 12k course starts in the city before making its way west to the Great Highway, where you’ll finish by Ocean Beach. Test your legs on Hayes Street Hill, take in the iconic city sights and head into Golden Gate Park – all the while being cheered on by the incredible people of San Francisco.
The celebrated Bay to Breakers race was first held in 1912, known then as the Cross City Race.
With each year that's passed, Bay to Breakers has grown into a glorious celebration of the human spirit. Now one of the largest foot races in the world, this event attracts not just world-class runners but thousands of costumed runners and walkers.
With live music, thousands of spectators, and a challenging course, this event is truly a showcase of all San Francisco has to offer.
Breakers Bonus - Make it 15k
Those who fancy trying something a bit longer have another option, runners can choose to do the Breakers Bonus 3k which adds to the end of the original route, for a total of a 15k run.
DoorDash Centipede Team Run
If you weren't sure how this event could get even more fun, try doing a 12k run linked to your teammates. Teams of 13-15 will travel the whole route linked together by a bungee cord or another safety mechanism.
