7:03 am
the 104th edition. we'll have coverage from the start to the hay street hill and finish. we begin though at the starting line. we're joined by the man in charge of this scene. very popular bay area tradition. race director bill burke. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. >> remember last year you were delayed about 20 minutes so give me what is going on now. any delays on the course? putting on last-second touches? >> everything is going smooth. there are no anticipated delays. we actually expect an on-time start at 8:00 a.m. today. >> 50,000 people are expected to participate. what is new this year compared to last year? just looking at some of the things that -- obviously the number of port-o potties boosted by 200. what else? >> we've got -- as you said a lot more port-o-potties. we have an additional sobering
7:04 am
station to kind of control the fun and zaniness of the event. we've got new activation at the finish line of course. the big thinking for the event, a new title sponsor in zappos. so they've come to the table and really enhanced the event in so many ways. the athletes will see that today. along the race course, and certainly at the finish line. >> bill, what do you think, about 20 years ago this race had close to 100,000 participants. over the years it's kind of decreased, 50,000 registered. what do you attribute to the lower. a runners participating this year? >> i think -- i think -- i ran it actually in 1987 and there were 72,000 the year that i ran. it was an iconic event. still one of the most iconic running events in the world. a lot has to do with the support that sponsors and management puts into the event. i have to be candid that new
7:05 am
leadership took over the event last year. the entrance went up by 10,000 last year. entrants. and another 8,000 this year. it's been massive growth in the last two years of bringing this event back to what it was when i was participating in 1987. i think -- i believe you're going to see a slow resurgence of bay to breakers. and we cannot be more happy for the athletes here today to participate. >> i think it would be great as well not only for san francisco but the entire bay area. do you expect any world records out there? >> the temperatures are certainly cool enough. we have an extremely strong men's field today. i don't know if they are going to catch a record but we do expect it to go really close today. both in the men's and women's race. so the temperatures are relatively going to stay cool most of the day. so i see a lot of athletes that are coming out here to actually race and run. they should run some pretty good times today overall. >> bill burke live at the
7:06 am
starting line of the bay to breakers. you're a busy man. i appreciate you taking the time to hang out with us on "mornings on 2". >> thank you so much. thank you to san francisco. have a great day. >> you too. the bay to breakest known -- breakers known for sentpedes, outlandish costumes and the enemy to all runners, hay street hill. allie rasmus joins us from the infamous hill. i know the runners are not there yet but a lot of preps underway. right?

7:07 am
closed yet so there is still traffic going through here. let's show you a live picture from the starting line. it's called bay to breakers because it goes from the financial district near the embarcadero all the way over to ocean beach. not that many people there yet, that's because we're still an hour away from it getting going. 50,000 people registered. that is up a few thousand compared to last year. there are people registered in this race from just about all 50 states and from around the world. one of the race organizers talked about the broad appeal this event has. >> this truly is a bucket list event for any runner out there. no matter where you are in the globe people want to come to san francisco to experience the race. even the serious runners are wearing costumes. i would say at least half the field is wearing costumes. some of the people have been working on that for months. you can tell by the effort they put into it. >> reporter: the race is known for its funky fun costumes, it's definitely one of the draws for the people taking part. even you heard the organizer
7:08 am
mention, even the serious runners make sure they have costumes, some of them do at least. zappos is the sponsor of the race for the first time this year and they are, for the first time going to be instituting some records, minor records so fun things like apparently there's going to -- be people trying to break a record for the longest one- handed conga line. a couple of years ago instituters had no alcohol policy and no coolers allowed. and according to the rulebook participants are supposed to wear clothing but it's been my experience covering this, that doesn't always happen. they have added more port-o- potties to ease concerns of some of the people who live in the neighborhood. this is alamo square here. they have 200 more potties. they have new signs urging people to use them. let's say. that is a new sign, i've been out here for the last four years covering this race and that's the first time i've seen
7:09 am
that sign there. it's been my experience that people do find ways to hide the alcohol, to maybe start out at the race with some clothing on and then lose it along the way so. we'll see what happens here. back to you. >> we'll make sure we keep our camera a little bit alert this morning. thank you so much. let's talk about this race route. it begins at 8:00 this morning. this is a look at the where those runners will be going. starts at main and howard streets, ends at the great highway at lincoln. major roads are closed this afternoon. they include sections of several streets and the great highway. access to golden gate park is also going to be limited. there are new developments in a hostage situation overnight in almeida county. police say the suspect, 51-year- old sean mcgee is now in custody. officers say they believe he robbed a wells fargo in a safeway market in antioch yesterday. witnesses say he left on a bicycle and then jumped right into a truck. officers later chased him along

8:02 am
but if you have less sunshine it's going to feel a little bit cooler. so 53 degrees now in and around san francisco. by 10:00 mostly cloudy. temperature will remain in the mid-50s and then as we get into the second half by lunchtime upper 50s in the forecast with mostly cloudy skies arrest the bay to breakers event -- as the bay to breakers event ends or at least the run. it will continue most of the day if you're out there having a good time just be aware that it is going to continue to be on the cool side. we will have a high clouds in store today. showers remain to the north. we remain in the trough-like pattern. for us it will just mean below average temperatures. with a mix of sun and clouds. upper 50s at the coast. 60s around the bay and some of the warmest locations, warmest getting to about 70 this afternoon. let's look at the numbers outside your door now. widespread 50s, low to mid-50s from santa rosa into sfo and 56 mountainview. by the way sfo reporting delays

hill. right now we just have police cars heading down here but looking around, giving you a 360-view, this is next to alamo square, you can see the first few people in their costumes. these are spectators. they don't have race bids on. but along with the 50,000 people who take part in the race, there are thousands more who line the race route to take pictures and cheer the runners on in their costumes and sometimes people who have maybe some beverages out here on the side, will join the people partying in the back of the race. looking over here, looks like they are getting ready for maybe the first serious runners to start coming down the hill. this is a view from sky fox 2, 50,000 people, registered for this race this year. that is up a few thousand from the 40,000 last year. people are registered from all 50 states and 40 different countries. the race is known of course for its quirky costumes, zappo's is the sponsor this year and asked participants to try and set

8:06 am
year compared to last year. this is around alamo square. a couple of years ago they started to close down and fence off this park so people partying, maybe having a little too much to drink wouldn't tear up the grass and make things a little too rowdy there. the same rules apply as last year, no alcohol allowed and law enforcement is along the race route and they are supposed to be -- they say they are going to be cracking down on the people who are a little too intoxicated. floats are also not allowed, no rolling coolers allowed. participants are supposed to wear clothing but it's been my experience coverage this that -- covering this there's always some people who find ways to get around the restrictions. we'll see a little later this morning. back to you. >> i know they are cracking down on people without race numbers and bids -- the salmon, do they have race bibs to go backwards? >> reporter: they did. the two salmon we caught up with this morning did have race bibs. i'm sure -- i'm not sure if
