Epistode 15: Ron Tabb ('83 Runner Up in the Boston Marathon)

Posted by Vince Varallo on

Ron Tabb is a retired male long-distance runner from the United States, who competed in the late 1970s and early 1980s in the men's marathon. He won the 1981 edition of the Paris Marathon ex-æquo with England's Dave Cannon. He won the 1983 Beijing Marathon and competed at the 1983 World Championships in Athletics later that year, finishing in 18th place overall. He qualified for the 1980 Olympic team -- but never competed due to the U.S. boycott on the Moscow Games that year -- once held the sixth fastest marathon time ever recorded and has won 10 marathons around the world. He is one of only four Americans to run more than 20 marathons under 2:20 and is the only American to win major marathons on five different continents.
