I don't mind that sort of advertising, as it's basically a community fundraiser. The outright selling of products is a different matter.

Ah I see, I just saw the same thing happen before, and I was just wondering how it could get people from here to join that race.

They're probably posting it lots of places in the hope that someone local sees it...
