Along those lines, shouldn't the National Championship be a multi-day

To encourage people not to go flat-out for that one day 50/100 miles? 

If they knew they had to get up and do it again the following day, 
would that would change the way people raced? 

And wouldn't multi-day be a *true* test of endurance?

Just a thought (honest, I'm not trying to wind people up...) <g>.
