RE: $40 for local 4 mile Turkey Trot is absurd
The prices for these events have really become absurd. I just pass on those events and support the ones with more reasonable entry fees. I have a rail trail I sometimes go to about 30 minutes away for a tempo run. They are using this for a turkey trot to run 1.55 miles out and back. There is absolutely no road crossings and they need no police or any services. They are charging $30. I just laughed.

In 1980, you could run the Chicago Marathon for $8 and the minimum wage was $3.10. Now the marathon is approaching $150 and the minimum wage is $7.25.
