else has noticed but it seems to me that people that
demand the most comfort outside the race are the first
ones to drop out when the going gets tough.
> Please be more sensitive making silly suggestions.I don't think it's silly. If you have 200 entrants
and 100 slots, then half of them aren't going to like
the selection process no matter how fair you try to
make it. I think it's noble that Hardrock intends to
keep the entry fee below what the market will bear,
but then they just have to substitute some other
arbitrary hurdle to limit entries. This could be a
lottery (like Western States), a trail work
requirement (like Wasatch), or tougher qualifying
standards (like the world championships or Ironman).
"None of the above" is not an option. You must choose
names somehow, and there is no way to do it and still
keep everyone happy.
The point of my previous post was to ask what is so
special about Hardrock that it fills up when there are
plenty of cheap or free races? It is not like you
have to have a lot of money to run ultras. But if you
want prestige, I think you should have to pay for it.
