That's very noble of you. Not everyone decides right and wrong with the same results. People make me angry unnecessarily everyday. However, that is their right as long as they are not breaking any laws. Bandits might be cheap and annoying, however they aren't doing anything "bad".

Dirt Poor Runner,
No, it is NOT ok. Even if you decide it is a public street and you aren't taking any drinks, etc., etc., that's all just your rationalization for what you know is a bad thing.
At a BARE minumum, it makes the people who pay and those who volunteer their time ANGRY to see you running without a number. It is always NOT right to make people angry unnecessarily.
If you can't afford to pay, then go find a measured course somewhere and do time trials.
And, don't listen to my friend 359. Not all runners have bandited a race. I NEVER have, and I never will.
359 - Yes, I have NEVER done that, and I've run TONS of races - paid for them all.
Flagpole...sorry but I am calling you out on this one. Not even once?
