Virtual 12k Race


Date: Sunday, August 22, 2021


You pick your route – get wild with your course. Create an epic design or find somewhere new.

This year we will be hosting a Virtual 12k Race for all of our participants that have come to love the virtual life. It’s the same Bay to Breakers 12k race you know and love – minus the travel and Hayes Street Hill – you’re welcome!

The beauty of a virtual race is the convenience. You’ll get to run on your own time, create your own start line and route. Then, you’ll get to show off your time on August 22, 2021 to the rest of the virtual runners.!

Drape Yourself In SWAG!

All virtual runners will receive a bib via email that can be downloaded to represent Bay to Breakers while they run. Virtual runners will also receive the shirt and medal in the mail after August 22, 2021. More details about shipping and swag will be available closer to race day.


What do I get for running the virtual race?

All virtual runners will receive a bib via email to wear during their run and their race shirt and the finisher medal will be mailed out after the race.

Can I run both the live 12k Runner & the Virtual Run?

No, the virtual race option is to replace the live 12k Runner distance. They will take place on the same day and will receive the same swag items.

If you would like to change from the live event to the Virtual 12k option – or vice versa – you can do so before August 1, 2021. Visit to complete the change.

Can I donate to California Wildfire Relief Fund?

Yes, during your registration you will have the option to contribute a set amount to the California Wildfire Relief Fund. We appreciate your donation. Continue to help us spread the love this year. ❤️
