Expensive ass marathons and races in general

I ran across a very good article today from Running Times (my favorite running mag) where they interviewed several race directors and assorted types to see why races have doubles, and even tripled in price over the past few years.  My take…its crap.  They are capitalizing on the current running boom.  Plain and simple. When a first time triathlon in New York costs just under $900 (yeah, thats correct) and it sells out in under an hour, thats capitalism.


Linkage: Its right here sucka!

About runfaraz

I am a guy who loves to run marathons, and has been gifted with exceptionally slow genes which makes for mid pack finishes in races. If I don't run I become an unbalanced manic fool, so yes...running is my prozac. I believe that the key to a happy productive life is balance. Balance in all areas of your life. If one area is out of balance, all others go out of balance. Come back often as I love to see the hit counter go up!!! View all posts by runfaraz
