- Has it ever been discussed?
- What would be some of the pros and cons?
- Why would it not be considered?
- What distances would be run? (50-mile?, 100k?, 100-mile?, 24-hour?)
- Road or Trail....or both?
Being in and around this sport for several years and seeing the growth (and addition of large prize purses) gives validity to ask these questions. Also, I have seen so many impressive performances in ultrarunning, and have witnessed the same drive, determination, and dedication to training by ultrarunners that Olympic athletes put forth.
What do you think?
