Making friends in my local running club FB group
I came across this gem in my local running club Facebook group. A local XC coach commented that the local Turkey trot to benefit the Red Cross was a rip off because we didnt have chip timing, mile markers, or a race clock. The event is a fucking fundraiser! I've volunteered the last 4 years putting this event together. We get about 3000 registered which is huge for my small town. 90% of the people walk the 5k. Theres kids, babies in strollers, dogs on leashes. For the most part, this is the only 5k these people are going to do all year. They dont gove a shit about time. And no where do we advertise chip timing or any kind of awards. $25 is a great price point without scaring anybody away with high fees. I couldn't help offering some sarcastic perspective to this guy. I'll keep you all posted on my petty party here.
