The most striking thing to me about a race like Bay to Breakers is the huge flow of humanity cascading from start to finish. I’m afraid the iPhone camera I carried during the race really couldn’t capture the immense mass of nearly 30,000 people celebrating the event in their own way over the 12 kilometers. It’s a race the city of San Francisco has embraced, that probably couldn’t exist anywhere else in this country. These photos don’t give the Bay to Breakers experience justice, but hope you will enjoy them all the same. One of them has been slightly altered for reasons that should be obvious.
