Bay to Breakers 12K

May 18 we are walking Bay to Breakers again... come join us. We got a hotel outside of the city (cheaper) Friday & Sat and will take BART to the race. You have to pick up your packet Sat 17 at the expo (or have it mailed to you) - our group (5 of us) is going dressed in Sacramento Kings garb (black pants purple Kings shirts. I have a couple extra if you need/want to borrow one) Sign up today at

San Francisco’s Bay to Breakers is the oldest consecutively run annual footrace in the world, a staple to the City by the Bay since May 1912. With a starting point near the San Francisco Bay, a few blocks from The Embarcadero, the 12K race runs west through the city and finishes at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto the Pacific Coast’s Ocean Beach. A quintessential San Francisco experience for 102 years, the race is interwoven into the fabric of the city and is a true reflection and celebration of life between the breakers and the Bay. The 2014 edition will take place on Sunday, May 18.

    Three things: 1) Anyone going from Sacramento on the day? I haven't yet reserved lodging and wonder about additional options (and what others might be doing in addition to San Pablo and City proper).

    2) Link for the hat (is this it?):

    3) Anyone in this group actually running (not walking) it?
