SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – At least two people were injured in San Francisco Sunday during the Bay to Breakers foot race that was delayed for about 25 minutes so that equipment on the route could be set up.

The two people, both suffering from minor injuries, were transported to a hospital, San Francisco Department of Emergency Management spokesman Francis Zamora said.

The annual 7.46-mile race, which was scheduled to begin at 8 a.m., was delayed until about 8:25 a.m. because authorities had equipment along the
route that had to be installed first.

San Francisco police are not releasing information about arrests, runners who were stopped due to nudity and other information until the race
is over, Zamora said.

Bay to Breakers officials said that the 12K race, involving about 40,000 runners who headed from downtown San Francisco west to Ocean Beach,
was to end at 10:30 a.m. but that was before the race was postponed for 25-minutes Sunday morning.

Over 150,000 people are expected to jam San Francisco city streets during the Bay Area’s largest foot race/moving party. The seven-mile racecourse goes from the beginning of Howard Street, near the Embarcadero, up Hayes Street in Alamo Square, through Golden Gate Park and ending at the finish line at Ocean Beach.

Fencing has lined the perimeter of Alamo Square, preventing runners and spectators from making it into a pit stop. Road closures in and around the Richmond and Sunset districts are expected to reopen by 4:00pm.
