With 8000 runners, so does Thailand benefit from the money they spend.  Should be a small inconvenience for a few white supremacists. Don't see any negativity from New Yorkers staging the New York Marathon, or Boston, Rome, Tokyo et al.

never mind the inconvenience to people not interested in running around in the heat as long as Laguna makes lots of money out of it
