I think it's a great idea - don't be put off by a lukewarm reception
in some parts, it's often a sign you're doing something new.

When the mark of "Ubuntu" is humanity it only makes sense to take an
interest in the various non-standard ways that the FLOSS community can
have a positive "human" impact.  Doing something like this occurred to
me when I ran the GNR this year - although I wasn't sure of the
potential for getting a bunch of Linux geeks to run 13 miles.

(For the record, I hobbled a dodgy-kneed 3hrs 8seconds)
