RE: Why hasn't parkrun taken off in the US?
Remember parkrun is a run, not a race. That's how it gets round lots of the UK permit rules.

It's a social gathering as much as anything.

Yanks wouldn't get the concept - it's not monetized, it's not about absolute performance, it's just a great social event, every week.
