If gymnastics can honor a team with medals then distance runners should be given the same prizes

Road Racing is an enormous sport world-wide with huge mass-participation races of 20,000 to 40,000 runners all over the globe. Such a sport should be recognized and glorified at the Olympic Games. The marathon, already a signature event at any Olympics, could be joined by a criterium style road race as one of the most exciting events of the Games and a team competition within the race would be especially exciting.

Team score in the marathon would be great--adds excitement and expands focus beyond medalists.

More adults participate in road racing than all other sports combined. I especially like the idea of making it a team sport - in the form of a relay race.

Both additional events are good for the sport and Olympic philosophy. With the popularity of road relays it will encourage even more participation with the publicity this will generate as an Olympic event.
