Bay to Breakers is not a race
I have run in one Bay to Breakers. Never again. The only way I will run again is if I can be placed as a seeded or sub-seeded runner. Unfortunately, the chances of that happening are slim to none.
I like to run, but I don’t like to trip over a crowded group of drunk walkers. I don’t mean to sound like a snob. Enjoy the party. Just don’t call it a race.
