Read the following passage and blacken the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct
answer to the following questions.
Foot racing is a popular activity in the United States. It is seen not only as a competitive sport but also as a
way to exercise, to enjoy the camaraderie of like-minded people, and to donate money to a good cause. Though
serious runners may spend months training to compete, other runners and walkers might not train at all. Those not
competing to win might run in an effort to beat their own time or simply to enjoy the fun and exercise. People of all
ages, from those of less than one year (who may be pushed in strollers) to those in their eighties, enter into this
sport. The races are held on city streets, on college campuses, through parks, and in suburban areas, and they are
commonly 5 to 10 kilometers in length.
The largest foot race in the world is the 12-kilometer Bay to Breakers race that is held in San Francisco every
spring. This race begins on the east side of the city near San Francisco Bay and ends on the west side at the Pacific
Ocean. There may be 80,000 or more people running in this race through the streets and hills of San Francisco. In
the front are the serious runners who compete to win and who might finish in as little as 34 minutes. Behind them
are the thousands 20 who take several hours to finish. In the back of the race are those who dress in costumes and
come just for fun. One year there was a group of men who dressed like Elvis Presley, and another group consisted
of firefighters who were tied together in a long line and who were carrying a fire hose. There was even a bridal
party, in which the bride was dressed in a long white gown and the groom wore a tuxedo. The bride and groom
threw flowers to bystanders, and they were actually married at some point along the route.
