BAY TO BREAKERS
One of the oldest footraces in the world, this 12km run dates back to 1912 and takes participants through San Francisco from the Bay to the Great Highway, where they can see huge breakers crashing dramatically onto Ocean Beach. The route also features Hayes Hill, and you’ll probably be sorry it does, as the gradient reaches 11 per cent. Numbers now stand at 50,000 runners each year, but the race set a Guinness World Record for most participants in 1986, when a staggering 110,000 people turned up.
