It’s that time of year again: The annual Bay to Breakers 12K race through the city is this Sunday. First held on January 1, 1912 as one of many events designed to lift residents' spirits after the 1906 earthquake, the race and unofficial costume parade has become a San Francisco staple as unique as the city itself.

Runners and walkers will start the route at Howard at Main streets in SoMa before setting off to traverse the iconic Hayes Street Hill and Golden Gate Park to Ocean Beach.
