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.

It does seem odd that Adidas sponsor parkrun almost worldwide yet have declined to sponsor it in the USA.

Got to love the fact that a major fastfood company showed the most interest in offering sponsorship in USA

I imagine the sticking point is who prepared to pick up liability insurance on a nationwide scale

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.
