The 2011 Zazzle Bay To Breakers 12K is in the rear view mirror and the race website has already got the countdown clock going for the 2012 running of the 101st Bay To Breakers 12K race. As of this posting time it's a little over 368 days away. This year's race featured a first-ever alcohol ban, which resulted in a race that while still crazy, was a little more orderly than in years past.
Although the alcohol was somewhat contained this year, that didn't stop folks from putting together some more quality costumes. Folks at twitter were uploading pictures left and right and we also had some quality race video around 4th street in SOMA. For more pictures of the race, head over to the Bay To Breakers flickr account as well as the San Francisco Examiner's slide show.
Oh, and there was also race results worth noting. In some of the more fun results, the fastest Men's human centipede was from LinkedIn, which finished with a time of 37:00. The fastest women's centipede came from the UC Davis Aggies, who finished with a time of 49:06. If you don't recall your history, the UC Davis Aggies track club was the first ever centipede running champion in the 1978 Bay To Breakers race.
You can view all race results HERE. Below is a rundown of the top women and men in this year's race. You can check out all our coverage leading up to the race in our 2011 Zazzle Bay To Breakers Stream. We'll see you next year!
