I'm interested in the forums opinion.
In Greater Manchester we have 5 park runs to choose from every Saturday morning.
For those who do not know - These are 5K races and there is no entry fee.
My feeling as a club man is.....Just what is the point of us (the clubs) organising events and paying levies and fees for our athletes anymore - as we can't possibly compete with park run.
If you think i'm misinterpretting things - check out the size of the field at Heaton Park in the morning and then compare it to the size of the field at the Salford 5K in the afternoon.
Old news you might say - but in my opinion it isn't fair and is becomming detremental
