San Francisco's Bay to Breakers run celebrates its 100th anniversary this year, but some devotees are dismayed by new rules, including a ban on booze and floats. Race organizers say they want to make sure the event is fun for everyone, including for neighbors who are fed up with trash and public drunkenness. Will this year be any different?

Host: Dave Iverson

Guests:

  • Ed Sharpless, chair and founder of Citizens for the Preservation of Bay2Breakers
  • Jarie Bolander, president of the North Panhandle Neighborhood Association
  • Sam Singer, spokesperson for the Zazzle Bay to Breakers race
