You missed it. The Bay to Breakers is a race in San Francisco that began 109 years ago to cheer up its people after the devastating 1906 earthquake and fire.
The race starts near the wharfs and runs through the downtown San Francisco, across Market Street, up Hayes Street hill, down to Golden Gate Park, through the park, ending at the waves at the beach — the breakers. It is a 7.5-mile course with tens of thousands of runners and walkers participate.
Most are dressed in every kind of costume you can imagine — a few in just skin. Two joggers from Morada ran this year. Their ages totaled 100 years.
Gene Standfield, 84, of Morada is a 30-year runner who took his granddaughter Caroline, age 16, for her first time.
