VIDEO: Tens of thousands turn out for San Francisco’s annual Bay to Breakers

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) —  Runners came out in the thousands to participate in San Francisco’s famously funny footrace, Bay to Breakers Sunday morning.

By 8:00 a.m., an estimated 50,000 people took to the streets, costume-ready to tackle the 12K run.

The course starts at Main and Howard streets near the Embarcadero, runs west through the city and finishes at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto the Pacific Coast’s Ocean Beach.

KRON4 has full team coverage of the event, which is the oldest annual footrace in the world, dating all the way back to 1912.

Stanley Roberts and Hermela Aregawi are there to capturing the best moments of the race, which include live bands, DJs, and performances to keep runners motivated all the way to the finish line.

KRON4’s J.R. Stone is manning the KRON4 booth and greeting runners as they cross the finish line.

Philemon Cheboi won the male division and the overall race with a time of 34 minutes, 48 seconds.

Buze Diriba won the female division with a time of 39:48.

The KRON4 booth is part of the Finish Line Festival alongside Ocean Beach.

To accommodate all this activity several streets will be closed and the local public transportation will be running on a specialized schedule.

KRON4 has all of that information here.
