Mayor Celebrates 100th Anniversary of Bay to Breakers
Mayor Edwin M. Lee today celebrated the 100th Anniversary of the Bay to Breakers 12 kilometer foot race, which will take place Sunday, May 15th. The 100th running of Bay to Breakers is sponsored by Bay Area micro-retailer Zazzle. Mayor Lee honored race organizers on this historic occasion with a proclamation declaring May 13-15, 2011 as Bay to Breakers Weekend in San Francisco.
“Bay to Breakers is an unequalled sporting event which attracts athletes from around the world,” said Mayor Lee. “A century ago, San Francisco showed the world that it had recovered from the Great Earthquake and Fire of 1906. What better way to show that our City was up and running than to get ‘up and running’, literally, from Bay to Breakers. The City and race organizers have worked hard to make sure that this year’s race will be a fun and safe race, ensuring that the race will be here for years to come.” Read more.
