I'm way past the age where I could compete in such an event but I do appreciate the training and effort it takes to be competitive in such events.

However, I don't see the advantage to the participants of holding it in a wilderness area.  Seems to me it would be like holding a foot race through the Louvre.  Does anyone stop to enjoy the surroundings?  

Over the past 40 years of backpacking and hiking I've taken plenty of pictures of places I've enjoyed.  None of those pictures are of the time it took to me to get there and back.
