Barkley marathons just happened, and in the past two days I've seen a sh*tton of twitter posts about how the event is racist, not inclusive, not equitable, anti-woke, sexist, anti-LGBTQSOVVA, etc. What the hell is going on?
I've noticed that relative to road running, a lot of "professional ultrarunners" are outspoken wokes, tend to some extreme (lots of vegans, full-blown socialists, former junkies/alcoholics, anti-work types). I miss ultrarunning up to 2015/2016 before it got "popular" and politics infiltrated it.
But seriously what the hell is going on. I f****g hate this sh*t.
