Ron Daws

Ron Daws (June 21, 1937 – July 28, 1992) was a runner and 1968 Summer Olympics men's marathon athlete.[1] Born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, he also competed at the 1967 Pan-American Games marathon[2] and finished first in the National AAU Marathon also in 1967[2][3] on June 11.[4]

Daws was a friend of Steve Hoag and Jim Berka. The three often finished 1-2-3 in Minnesota races. He was married to Lorraine Moller[5][6] in the 1980s, who he later divorced.[7]

In 1984, Daws appeared on The Mary Hanson Show (named after his wife, Mary Hanson, whom he married in October 1991). Daws died of a heart attack in 1992.[8] In honor of his death, in 1993, the MDRA Ron Daws 25K in Minneapolis was renamed after him.[9]
