Running on a track has never appealed to me because it feels like I never make any progress.  "Ugh, I'm at the starting block again?"  Same with a soccer field or anything that must be looped many times to gain any amount of distance.  And I'm not really a fan covering the same route twice, like a there-and-back type of thing.  It makes me think about how much more area I could've covered if I didn't have to end where I started.  I like running in large loops, preferably with a few turns and some terrain variation.  I like the scenery change, and it makes it feel like more of a race, albeit one that takes place entirely in my own little world while my headphones fill my head with old school rap. #sports
