How important do you think community is to ultrarunning?

Agreed, Andy. The community aspect is key. I’ve got a great group of like-minded friends who I know because I run with them. And while it’s true that the ‘big’ races may feel exclusive, I personally know three people who got into WS100 on their first attempt. Also, Hardrock may be difficult to get into but they have thoughtfully constructed their new lottery to reward persistence – because the number of tickets grows exponentially, after several continuous years of trying new entrants see greatly improved odds. And the majority of ultras are still easy enough to get into – instead of of conspiracy theories about secret entrance requirements, it would great to see people put their energy into running a new race. I’ve never been to one where I haven’t met some good people!
