John “Wulfman” Wulf completed his first Veterans' Day Race in 1956 as a sophomore member of
Butte High’s cross country team.
After high school, Wulfman left Butte
for a time while he served in the United States Army.
Years later, Wulfman returned
to Butte and the Vets' Day Race (which opened to post-high school
runners in 1976), and he finished the race
not-less-than-21 times before his passing in June of 2007.
Wulfman's last Vets' Day Race
came a half century after his first.
