Hi,

I am in San Francisco and planning to run in Bay to Breakers. I am excited plus a little anxious.
Any suggestions or experiences?

Thanks,

I only just saw this, but you did post in the Central and South America section! I hope you enjoyed it as it is quite a mixture of serious runners and people in costumes just having fun. I hear runners weren't allowed backpacks this year because of the Boston bombings and had to use waist packs instead.

Thank you very much for your response. It was a unique experience to be B2B.. I wish they given a backpack to Ethiopian Tolossa Gedefa Fufi, the winner of the race..

Google the stats for past winners and you can see when the Africans started to come in first. I hear the weather was good too. Glad you enjoyed it.

Yea, weather was pretty good, it was totally fog free which is really a perfect setting for the costumed foot racer to jogg. Enjoyed fully :)
