I must confess that I have jokingly in the past remarked that Parkrun is too socialist for the USA but reading that article makes me wonder. There does seem to be a massive gap everywhere between the idea that everyone should be doing real exercise and the organised provision of it.

I wouldn't have thought that individual sponsors need to worry about that.
It is a sad reflection on human nature that people seem to assume that any misfortune they meet must be someone else's fault and this prevents good things happening.
