RI 6 Hour

RI 6 Hour Streakers – Lee Dickey

Posted at September 13, 2013 | By : | Categories : RI 6 Hour | 1 Comment

Next up on the “Streaker Series” is Lee Dickey from Dracut, MA.  Lee has run over 50k in each of his RI 6 Hour races and he will attempt to do the same this year…


A typical view on course.

How did you find out about the first RI 6 Hour?  Forget, word of mouth, Cool Running, Ultramarathon List?

What made you want to run it?  Nearby, convenient, safe, fun seeing and meeting other runners compete.

What keeps you coming back?  I’ll always do local non technical ultras 50M or less.  Every ultra/marathon is like a reunion for me

Any personal goals for the 2013 event?  50K +

Will you be at the post race party at Track 84?  Probably not, but for a couple of Buds or Coronas yes.  Need relatively gluten-free beer, I’m celiac.

Lee had this to add…

Harry Lepp and I each ran almost all the old Nifty 50 Coventry races and the 6 hour is now the only ultra option in RI.  I’ve finished 302 ultras and marathons since 1983.  I run them for fun now and try not to keep the volunteers too late.  Thanks for organizing this.

I would like to wish Lee good luck on tackling the 2013 race and we are honored to be on his list of races!
