Last year I dressed up as a caddy shacker alongside our impressive float for Bay to Breakers. This year I decided to watch from the peanut gallery with some friends bbq'ing some good chicken breasts, dogs and hogs. It's pretty amazing to see how many people participate in the Bay to Breakers. I mean we were out there in the pan handle from 8:30 until 2 and it was bumper to bumper breasts, chests and costumesque.
I did a bit of research and uncovered some interesting factual tid bits:
*Started in 1912 as a way to lift the city's spirits after the disastrous 1906 San Francisco earthquake, it is the longest consecutively running footrace in the world (other races' courses and lengths have changed over time).
*The race now holds the Guiness Book of world records for highest participation foot race with 110,000 runners in 1986.
