Interesting point. I've never thought about being "too grassroots" to move to a more elaborate finishline. My thought was that racers will enjoy finishing at a cool finishline. I'm just brainstorming here, but I was thinking about adding music and a PA system as well (even for road races) to make the atmosphere more festive. You could be right though; racers might enjoy "grass roots" too. Who knows. The inflatable arch might be a little over the top, so to speak. It would be hard to use on a course that wasn't completely closed to traffic.
