Clearly, you have never been to Ernst Cafe—a "tall modern building" it is not. There are many reasons the run was moved from the FQ to the CBD. One reason in particular is that the "bulls" aren't 2000 lb behemoths that can clear a street with one grunt. They're 130 lb rollergirls who can seriously injure themselves in the "narrow" streets of the FQ. It's also a family event. The narrow streets make it dangerous for the kids who participate. And lastly, if you actually run it this year, you'll notice there is plenty of wrought iron along the new route, and the gauntlet on Lafayette street is paved with cobblestone. Sounds pretty "historic" to me.....
