San Francisco Race's naked joggers to be tolerated, barely
SAN FRANCISCO
Race's naked joggers to be tolerated, barely
They must dress at finish line or get ticketed

Steve Rubenstein, Chronicle Staff Writer

Running naked through the streets of San Francisco will be OK and not OK, according to the people in charge of the Bay to Breakers race.

You're not supposed to do it, said race organizers, wink-winking and nudge-nudging. But if you decide to do it on Sunday morning, there's not much anybody can do to stop you.

Every year, more and more people run the 7.5-mile race without clothes. Last year, there were more than 200 nude runners. Now, they even have their own Web site, logo, caps and souvenir pins.

This year, police say they will cite naked runners who do not clothe themselves once they cross the finish line at the west end of Golden Gate Park, but will not try to stop naked runners during the race.

"There's no way for police to run into the race and yank out the naked runners,'' she said Friday.

1. I like what the windmill guy said
"naked runners isn't unusual in SF-a guy running in a windmill costume is", or words to that effect.

3. I'm sure most people in SF have a piercing they can use :)
If not, one can be made to accommodate...
