Billy joined the Aggies in 2018 and is currently ranked 6th in North America in the 12hr ultra event. In 2018 he competed in 7 races and came in 1st in the 60-64 age group in all of them! Billy is inspired by John Kelley (‘57 Boston Marathon champion) and Amby Burfoot (‘68 Boston Marathon Champion), both local to where he grew up in Mystic, Connecticut. Kelley was his mentor, and both are a big part of why he runs. His goal is to provide hope to runners who have had a hip replacement - he had a hip replacement 2 years ago and since then '“it’s been all go!”

Fun Fact: Billy has been running for 51 years!

Favorite Aggie: Carlos Siqueiros and Doug Steedman
