Bay to Breakers 2005

Posted by Arcane Gazebo at May 15, 2005 1:23 PM

Technical difficulties have prevented me from getting the pictures up (which are mostly crowd shots; didn't get close enough to the good costumes to get a picture, or was running when I passed them). However, I did finish—slightly faster than last year, which isn't saying much. This year I arrived too late to get a good starting position, and for most of the race my speed was limited by how fast I could get around people. (It took 40 minutes to cover the first two miles this way, but I picked up a little speed after that.)

I'll make another attempt at uploading photos after I take a shower.


You might have told me this before, but please educate me on Bay to Breakers.

Bay to Breakers is a 7.5 mile road race across San Francisco--as you might guess, it starts by the bay and ends at the beach (running through downtown, the Haight, and Golden Gate Park along the way). It's been held for 94 years now, and has become a major San Francisco event that generally draws 60,000-70,000 people. Consequently, it's something of a focal point for SF weirdness, hence the costumes and tiki huts and naked runners. :)
