Second Annual RI 6 Hour Ultramarathon

This past Sunday, was the second annual RI 6 Hour Ultramarathon. The RI 6 Hour is – as the name implies – a 6 hour race that is won by the person who accumulates the most total miles at the end of 6 hours. It is run on a closed 2.7 mile loop in Warwick City Park, Warwick, RI.



My goal was to do at least as good as last year (36.9 miles), but I'd settle for at least 35 miles – as I'm 35 years old. I can't golf my age, but I can run it!

Again, my wife Jen helped immensely - always ready with food and drink on each lap. I ran a faster pace per lap this year and made the marathon distance 2 minutes faster than last year and the 50K distance 13 seconds faster than last year.

My legs were sore after about 20 miles - I hadn't counted on the sharp stabbing pains in each quad since I didn't get that annoyance at all last time, but a bit of walking loosened them up for more running, until I had to stretch again.

I finished my 35 miles at 5:17:46 - exactly 2 minutes faster than last year. This year, there was no option for 2 short 0.9 miles loops, so I was either done or going out for another 2.7 miles. My last lap was 30:48, so with 42 minutes until the 6 hour deadline, I figured I could walk a substantial part of the lap and still make it. I left and set out hard. I pushed the pace, leaving nothing in the tank as this was my last lap and finished it in 25:27 completing 37.8 miles in 5:43:13 - 30 seconds slower than last year, but 0.9 miles further.

The official results place me 8/64 with an official total mileage of 37.8168 miles in 5:43:15.

The table below documents my miles and times (by my watch).
