Dick Collins (born September 8, 1933 - 1997). Dick lived in Oakland,California.
- Said to have run close to 1000 ultras before his first DNF.
- The Bay Area Ultrarunners was organized about 1983 primarily due to the efforts of Dick Collins. Dick wanted to provide a vehicle for sponsoring ultra races. At the time there were no track ultra marathons on the schedule in the The San Francisco Bay Area. Don Choi had put on several events a few years earlier at the Woodside High School Track but Don had put those on singlehandedly and none of them were regularly scheduled events.
