San Francisco’s craziest costume party is here once again. And it’s just like us to dress up for a 12k race. Sponsored by craigslist, the 102nd Bay to Breakers runs from the Embarcadero all the way across the city will feature costume contests with cash prizes. The course runs through SF’s best features and neighborhoods, including Golden Gate Park, the Presidio, Alamo Square, and more, with reveling crowds cheering along the racers at every turn. Charitable organizations partnered with this year’s race include CancerCare and Daraja Academy, a school for Kenyan girls. Oh, and it’s a great way to exercise too. There’s even a $25,000 prize for the best runners — that’s definitely giant-check worthy. Spectators can enjoy the Volkswagen Greater Body Expo presented by Big 5 before the race, and ring in the runners at the food trucks and Dos Equis Beer Garden at the finish line.
