Bay to Breakers is the longest running continuous footrace in the World, running every year since 1912. It's also the largest race in the World, with a record 110,000 people running in 1986. This year, there were about 70,000 people. I know because I counted all their legs and divided by 2.

It's a 7-mile walk from the Bay to the Pacific. We took almost 3½ hours to make the trip, forced to travel at everyone else's speed. But there's plenty of entertainment along the way, even if you don't see all the naked people. It's a strange race, but this is San Francisco after all.
