I'll try to type carefully :o)
If you work out how much TG makes - Entry fees are only the start. Car Parking, Spectator costs etc follow.
Work out how much it costs - Errrrm. Maybe Teeshirts. All their own land == nothing. Insurance == You're having a laugh etc etc. The obstacles stay up, year after year.

I believe that he organised the original Wolverhampton Marathon, but as Matt implied, I heard that it came to a 'sticky' end!
