IPTC INFO
CaptionThe Bay to Breakers race was born six years after the 1906 earthquake as a way to boost the city's battered spirits and has endured long after the scars of shaking and fire have disappeared. A showplace for the city's irrepressible color and its affection for eclectic traditions Bay to Breakers is today one of the most beloved civic festivals. Over the years the race has mushroomed in size: popular enthusiasm for running in the 1980s pushed race participation to 110 000 by 1986 - making that year's race the world's largest footrace according to the Guinness Book of World Records. Although runners come from across the country and around the world the race is still a typically San Franciscan marriage of the philanthropic proceeds benefit a host of worthy local organizations and the bizarre airborne tortillas - a true reflection of life between the breakers and the Bay.
