But running would be a good time with family and friends on Thanksgiving AM so I want to bandit the race. There is almost no charitable benefit that the race supports, I don't feel like running fast, won't take aid, cross the finish line, etc. So, rather than paying $40 to run around the town I grew up in I am not going to pay and instead run and have a good time and then go spend the $40 on something more worthwhile. Thoughts?
Don't run it. Are you being forced to run it? You have a choice as a consumer, vote with your feet by not participating. Otherwise STFU.
