What races are exciting people for 2012?
From a small sample in a poll on my blog for the past week, it looks like most people who voted aren't all that excited about the biggest ultras in the world, possibly because they aren't doing them...I doubt many who got into Western States in the lottery aren't overly excited about it. But in general WS still seems to be capturing the attention of the (mainly US-based) people who occasionally flick through my blog. I wonder if this would be different in a year's time after some of the newer races have become more established.
Anyway, here are the non-indicative results.
17% Western States 100
10% Steamboat (Run, Rabbit, Run) 100
3% UROC 100k
3% TNF Endurance Challenge San Francisco
50% Something else
(doesn't add to 100% due to rounding)
