ING Drops Bay to Breakers Title Sponsorship

After five years of booze, bareback runners and increasingly bad press, insurance giant ING is bowing out as sponsor of San Francisco's annual Bay to Breakers race.

"All I can say officially is, they were a wonderful sponsor and chose not to renew for the 100th anniversary next year," said Sam Singer, a spokesman for the race, which is run by Anschutz Entertainment Group.
