If you somehow hadn’t heard, the 100th edition of “Bay to Breakers” hits town this Sunday. Watch or join the 70,000+ costumed citizens of San Francisco as they race, walk, stroll, or stumble the 7.46 miles from the Bay (Howard and Beale) to Breakers (the western end of Golden Gate Park).
It’s one of the largest races in America, and has been (but no more) the most drunk, and definitely the weirdest.
If you’re not registered to run the race, beware — organizers say they’re cracking down on unregistered participants. Maybe it’s best to join the spectators who’ll line the entire course.
Some of the best viewing spots are:
•Pre-race- near Embarcadero Station, get an over-the-top view of everyone in costume racing to the event.
•Along Alamo Square at the top of Hayes Street Hill – an amazing view of 70,000 all climbing Hayes Street.
•In front of the Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park
•And you can watch the finish line on the Great Highway
