Perhaps you're saying that "it's already everywhere", but at a granular level there are relatively isolated bubbles and a mass participation event effectively intermingles a bunch of those bubbles.
Yes that it what I was saying that COVID is in most parts of the country.
And if we have these bubbles and they mix in a perfectly safe environment (outdoors) that is good with me. The goal should not be to lockdown everything as much as possible but to let as many people do what they want to do and minimize spread.
And countries with hardcore lockdowns like Peru have done terrible with COVID. Plus at somepoint they aren't sustainable.
I think outdoor recreation events are pretty safe for everyone involved.
