Anyone who missed out on signing up for the 50,000 Zazzle Bay to Breakers registration spots — and anyone who actually believes that police will enforce this year’s new policy that only registrants can run in the race — can now take advantage of 5,000 more spots that just opened up.
The announcement comes as race organizers AEG landed a title sponsor for the event, which will allow the race to continue for at least two more years. This being the 100th year of the race, organizers are expecting the extra 5,000 tickets will sell out fast.
“We’re grateful to the city of San Francisco for working with us to accommodate the additional infrastructure and services that we’ve put in place to stage the surplus runners safely,” said race general manager Angela Fang in a statement.
Registration costs $75 per person with $5 of the fee going to charity.
DISCLAIMER: AEG, organizer of Bay to Breakers, shares the same owners as Clarity Media, which oversees The San Francisco Examiner.
