Mwangi tops 2015 Bay to Breakers

The 2015 Bay to Breakers on Sunday attracted thousands of people to the streets of The City, in celebration of what's undeniably one of the world's most unconventional and vibrant races.

The event over the years has become just as famous for the diversity of colorful costumes worn by its many participants, as it has for the race itself.

Isaac Mukundi Mwangi of Kenya topped this year's race with a time of 35 minutes, 25 seconds, according to the's Bay to Breakers website.

Jane Kibii, also from Kenya, placed first in the women's division, completing the race in 40 minutes, 46 seconds, according to the website.

The race started at 8 a.m. near the Embarcadero and finished at Ocean Beach. It is the oldest consecutively run annual footrace in the world, dating back to 1912, according to the site.

More on this story will be posted later today.
