Do athletes always run anticlockwise round the track, or are some tracks clockwise?

It seems to have become conventional to run in an anti-clockwise direction since the earlier part of the last century. Before that some tracks were clockwise, including those used for the Olympics in 1896, 1900 and 1904.
