Last weekend, nearly one hundred runners came together at City Park for the only ultra distance road race in Rhode Island. Called the 6-hour run, contestants shoot for 20-30, even 50 miles as they circuit the park a dozen times or more. Relay teams also take part, increasing the fun, and putting some faster runners on the course.
The event is sanctioned by the US Track and Field Association. Times are registered electronically, and the marathon portion can qualify runners for events like Boston.
