permanent Marathon route along river

I was running along the 3k running/bike path the other day, and started wondering why running races has gotten so expensive (marathon here was $50). Closing down streets, hiring pollice, organizer profit, etc. Why not expand the current running path to 5k, 10k, 1/2 marathon, marathon. and have most races run along it, a portion of the entry fees could go toward up keep, and people would have a better place to train for bigger events, like Boston. If done right, it could even be a model for cities that eant to encourage healthier life styles.
