Jerome Drayton (born January 10, 1945 in Kolbermoor, Bavaria, Germany) is a former long-distance runner who competed internationally for Canada. He was born as Peter Buniak in Germany, and came to Canada in the mid 1950s when his mother moved here.[1] He reportedly based his new name on two spinters he admired: Canadian world record holder Harry Jerome and American Paul Drayton.[2] A prominent runner in the 1970s, when he was for a time ranked[2] as the top marathoner in the world, he won the Fukuoka Marathon in 1969, 1975 and 1976, as well as the Boston Marathon in 1977. He is the Canadian record holder in the marathon, with his best time of 2:10:08, set in 1975; he has held the record since 1968.[2]
