Interesting article on race affordability: http://runningtimes.com/Article.aspx?ArticleID=26019
Morse is right, recreational racing runners are essentially an affluent bunch.  Just consider all the marginally useful expensive stuff (specialized watches/monitors, expensive shoes, the latest round of best-engineered-clothing-ever) marketed toward runners plus running camps, online coaching (sorry, Ryan) and whatnot.  And then there are so-called destination races in far-flung locales (almost always requiring expensive travel), cash cow for a given metro area for that weekend.  Where does it go from here, is there any hope for a discount race circuit?
