Public Safety Campaign for Alaska Airlines Bay to Breakers
Race Organizers & City Officials Stress Safety and Sobriety for
106th Running of Historic Race on Sunday, May 21
16 May 2017 – San Francisco, CA: This year’s Alaska Airlines Bay to Breakers Race on Sunday, May 21, marks the 106th running of one of the world’s best-loved sporting and celebratory events. More than ever, City officials and Race organizers are serious about keeping the Race free from alcohol abuse and nuisance behavior.
“Bay to Breakers has always been a great time for everyone,” said San Francisco Police Chief Bill Scott. “In years past because of binge alcohol consumption, there was a negative impact of our neighborhoods and we don't want to see that repeated. That said, we hope that everyone will come and have a great time again, absent any alcohol.”
To emphasize the point, a special campaign website is active at www.baytobreakersSFcom with public transit information, rules and regulations and links stressing this year’s campaign. The public safety message is also being magnified via a campaign on Facebook and Twitter.
“Last year’s running of Bay to Breakers was a success,” said Chief Scott. “We urge registrants and spectators to come out this year, and to remember the first rule: to have a great time, and remember to preserve our race, the neighborhoods, and our beautiful City. We look forward to seeing everyone on race day having a fun and safe time.”
