On Sunday, the 2012 Zazzle Bay to Breakers finally arrives. The madcap 12K race through the city of San Francisco always draws loads of serious runners and serious revelers alike and the city will be rocking all day long.
The race begins at 7:00 a.m. PT and will start at Beale and Howard. Due to the sheer number of runners that enter each year, the race will start in waves, with groups organized into separate "corrals" at the starting area. You can only imagine how the runners being corralled will add to the atmosphere. Here is a look at how the corrals will be set up.
The race begins at sea level in the Embarcadero and climbs steadily through the city before winding up at the Great Highway. Here's the full course map:
