Ronald C. Whittemore Top Senior Olympic Champion Best National Long Distance Runner Top All-Time Senior Olympian

Ronald Whittemore has shown time and time as an Olympic-athlete that his abilities transcend obstacles. Having qualified and attended every National Senior Games since 1995, he has won many awards and broken long-held records in road races and in his age division. For Mr. Whittemore, he started running as away to stay in shape and maintain health, and through this venture it became a habit until he was running every day. To this day, he maintains the record in Claremont for running the most consecutive days without missing one. He ranks second in New Hampshire in this respect.

Before running became the focal point of his life, Mr. Whittemore made a career out of being a computer programmer and analyst. He had originally intended to have a career in the Air Force, but after getting married to his wife Lillian, he felt the need to change plans. He first worked as a computer programmer for Cross Co. before joining Joy Manufacturing as a senior programmer. He continued providing these services at Computac, LLC before settling on the programming manager position at Datamann in 1979. He served in the United States Air Force from 1961 to 1965 and the United States Navy from 1956 to 1960.
