Good to know San Francisco is "cleaning up its act," (probably in response to its declining school-age population. ) You can run this race naked, but you will no longer be allowed to run it drunk.

Drunks will be detained in tents during San Francisco's Zazzle Bay to Breakers race | Dan Schreiber | Local | San Francisco Examiner

"last year’s race involved 26 ambulance trips to the hospital, 30 tons of trash left in the streets, hundreds of reports of public urination and defecation, even reports of home invasions."

I think the sobering-up tents for people who get too drunk is a great idea.

There is a race, but Bay to Breakers is primarily a costume street party with well in excess of 100,000 people. People will still be drinking and having a good time.

Sounds like it, doesn't it?

Just good, wholesome fun in the city that wants to make life healthier for you by banning circumcision, banning happy meal toys, banning colas in city buildings and banning carbon footprints.

I'm sorry but if I'm drunk and naked in San Fran, I definitely do not want to be 'detained' anywhere. Easy pickins eh?

More like an aging gay population, probably why San Francisco is not among the top ten "Gay Cities" anymore.

Which part, exactly, are they looking forward to the most? Stepping in a pile of human feces? The stench of urine? The sounds of the ambulances? Or the thrill of witnessing a home invasion?

Guess not everyone is so excited about this "fun" event.

"In recent years, neighborhood groups have complained about drunken participants getting out of control — urinating on property, behaving belligerently and trashing the areas along the race route."
