IMO, the only time limitation for a matathon should be the time the
race can keep the course safely open - period!
OK, but how about for a 24 hour race? If it's no hazard or nuisance

for the slower runners? ;-)
It should be spelled out on the registration form. This is always

Zounds, I don't know whether to laugh or sigh.
Let's try again.
OK, but how about a six day race? Keep the course open nine days for
the slower runners?
