I too, am one of the old farts.  I'll be 58 next September and did my last 48 
hour contest back in 2001.  I believe I took off a total of two hours.  

Leave the 48 hour contests as 48 hours.  It is truly an 'ironman' category.  
However, if one chooses not to participate in the marathon runs, then the "fun 
runs" are open to them.  

Just because you don't want to enter the 48 hour class, for whatever the 
reason, there are guys out there who do want to participate in it.  If the 
sponsors want to sponsor new categories for 24 hours or whatever, they should 
be very careful that they do not suck the blood out of the contest on the 
last 24 hours.
