What is your motivation to race?
Not 'to run' but to race - as in pinning on a number and standing on the start line, be it a Cross Country, Park-Run, Half Mara, Ultra etc... -
(I say 'race' as opposed to 'run' to avoid all the answers of 'I do it for me / to de-stress / etc')
Is it setting PBs, pushing yourself, enjoying new routes, running for a club, running to beat others? (Or other reasons of course)
