Daniel W. Feather, the namesake of the memorial run, was a co-founder of Chautauqua Striders. In 1979, he helped found the organization and served as a volunteer coach for several years. Feather’s lifelong interest in running led him to the New York State and International Police Olympics, where he earned numerous gold and silver medals. For several years, he also participated successfully in area triathlons.

Feather received the Chautauqua County Gold Achievement Award for personal fitness and was also selected as one of Jamestown Community College’s 50 Greatest Athletes. He became a Jamestown Police Officer on March 4, 1974 and served as such until his death on May 12, 1992. He was inducted posthumously into the Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame on February 18, 1993.
