Virtual Race Details

Bay to Breakers originally started with the purpose of unifying a recovering San Francisco community after a devastating event. For the past 109 years, the Bay to Breakers race has done just that. Now in 2020, though we’ll meet virtually, we still want the athleticism, the funk, the wild, the FUN and the spirit of this race to shine and keep the tradition alive.

Whether you run, walk, or dance your way to the finish, we want to see your 12K journey. So dust off that old Halloween costume or use this time to make a new one and get ready to run! We’ll be accepting your results anytime between September 20 – October 2, 2020.

You need some swag in your life! All participants will receive a race shirt or tank, medal, and bib – plus an exclusive Bay to Breakers hoodie! All of the swag will be shipped right to your front door and will arrive by October 16, 2020.
