The former Nevada Wolf Pack quarterback's 15-yard touchdown run in the second half for the San Francisco 49ers in the 34-31 loss to the Baltimore Ravens is longest rushing touchdown by quarterback in Super Bowl history.
Kaepernick broke the record set by another 49ers quarterback when Joe Montana went for a 6-yard scoring run against the Miami Dolphins in Super Bowl XIX.
Kaepernick also fell just two yards short of another Super Bowl record. He finished with 62 rushing yards, just shy of Steve McNair's quarterback rushing record of 64 yards in Super Bowl XXXIV for the Tennessee Titans against the St. Louis Rams.
Kaepernick, who completed 16-of-28 passes for 302 yards and a touchdown, also became just the second quarterback in history to pass for at least 300 yards and run for at least 50 yards in the Super Bowl. Joe Montana also did it in Super Bowl XIX.
