But you forgot to RUN! :D
Run, Forest, Run! ;)
Haha probably the most common community sport, either standalone or as a component of other sports. :D

Here in Canada we have his company called "Running Room" which I always found a bit odd. (runningroom.com) - You go there and pay money to run
as a group. They also have various running accessories for sale like shoes, clothing, books, etc.
The location near be is in a very busy area of the city, every now then when driving by I would see people from all walks of life gather there
to begin their run, a couple of times the group is so large (pre-covid) they can't all cross the street in one go before the light changes.
At $60 /head I always wondered why they just don't start running from home, but I guess there's the community aspect of it as well. But for
me, I can do without the high pressure sales tactics to buy $230 shoes.
I think you mentioned you're a runner? Do you have clubs or stores
like this in your neck of the woods?
Running can be a social thing. What's really taken off here is a British invention called Parkrun, thich is a free 5k run that happens every week
in many places. We have two Parkruns here in a city of just over
100,000. You can get decent numbers there. The thing about Parkrun is it's 100% free, and it's not a hook to try and sell something. It's a
true community event that relies on sponsorships and donations to
operate, and volunteers to run the actual events (and volunteering at Parkrun is a bit of fun).
To run Parkrun, you need to register (again free, and a once off), and
then you're ready to run _any_ Parkrun in the world.

I don't know. It sounds exactly what is wrong with the world (wide
web). Running for free at the charity of a global organisation. Need to register to attend a social event ...
Nowadays it is an innovation that people meet and run for free (in exchange of some personal data) in a park.
