AJW shares his Ode to an Old School Ultra. What do you love most about old school ultras?

However, what readers may not know about me is that I am also an unabashed lover of the low-key, Old School Ultras. You know the ones, those races where the race director draws the starting line in the dirt and where the finish-line food is the same stuff they have at the aid stations. It’s those races that are put on by a few local runners for a few other local runners in a place that maybe they have a permit for and where people park their cars wherever they can and try to follow the course markings which are usually minimal if they exist at all. It’s those kind of races with no prizes, maybe a cotton t-shirt, and a great down-home feel that is more reminiscent of a county fair than a running event.
