Bay To Breakers 2012: Road Closures And Public Transportation To/From The Race

The annual insanity that is Bay to Breakers is fast approaching, which means the party is just about set to kick off. Although many of the runners and observers will have a great time, the race itself raises some headaches in regards to transportation to and from the event, as well as street closures to accommodate the event.

For the 101st running of the event in 2012, the B2B organizers have put together a rundown of street closures surrounding the event. The list below includes streets along the entire course beginning in the Embarcadero, cutting through Hayes Valley, and continuing through Golden Gate Park to the end of the race at The Great Highway.
