The 2012 Zazzle Bay to Breakers has finally come and gone. Another year, another day of nonstop, raucous revelry. Great fun was had, but there were also plenty of serious runners taking part in the 12K run from one end of San Francisco to the other.
Mamitu Daska of Ethiopia was the women's winner, posting a time of 39:02.4. In the men's finishers, Sammy Kitwara of Kenya posted the top time of 34:40.5. Daska was the first runner to cross the finish line, however, taking home the overall prize of $25,000. Daska also picked up another $12,000 for being the first woman to reach the Hayes Street peak. Kitwara will head home with $12,000 of his own in bonuses.
