Bay to Breakers

Bay to Breakers is an annual footrace in San Francisco, California on the third Sunday of May. The phrase "Bay to Breakers" reflects the fact that the race starts at the northeast end of the downtown area a few blocks from The Embarcadero (adjacent to San Francisco Bay) and runs west through the city to finish at the Great Highway (adjacent to the Pacific coast, where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach). The complete course is 7.46 miles (12.01 km) long. The event is well known for many participants wearing costumes, and a few engaging in varying degrees of public nudity. From 1986 to 2010, it was officially the world's largest footrace with 110,000 participants, until it was surpassed by City2Surf event in Sydney. Attendance in 2015 was reported at roughly around 50,000.

In 2015, signed on as the multi-year title sponsor of "Bay to Breakers"; the name of the race became " Bay to Breakers".
