Clarence DeMar (1888-1958) Bronze medalist at the 1924 Paris Olympics and seven times Boston Marathon winner. Plus a few seconds and third positions, and all this contrary to doctor advice due to a heart murmur. “Mr. DeMarathon” entered the National Distance Running Hall of Fame in 2000 and a marathon is held in his honour annually.
