Why run ultramarathons?



I've been asked many times "why run ultras?" and spent many hours thinking about the answer, especially towards the end of long races. There is no good answer, but here are a selection of possibilities http://fellrnr.com/wiki/Why_Run_Ultras
 
When I first started to write about the "why" of ultrarunning, I thought that would be two or three possible answers, but over time the list has grown far longer. I've had lots of input and suggestions from many runners, and I welcome further suggestions.
