Jack Fultz is an elite American long-distance runner, who came to prominence in the 1970s after winning the 1976 Boston Marathon, the world’s oldest and most established marathon race. In addition to his win in 1976 Jack recorded two top 10 finishes in Boston and qualified for three consecutive United States Olympic Trials marathons in 1972, 1976, and 1980. Because President Jimmy Carter called for a boycott of the 1980 Moscow Games, Fultz did not run in the 1980 Olympic Trials. In 1996, Fultz was inducted into the Georgetown University Hall of Fame and on that occasion was invited to the White House to run with then-President Bill Clinton. Also in 1996, Fultz was inducted into the DC Road Runners Hall of Fame
