TOP 50 Legends

St George Marathon TOP 50 Legends
2011 is the 35th anniversary of the St. George Marathon, held each year during the first weekend in October.  To celebrate this historic anniversary, a thorough review of the marathon results throughout the years was done.  As a result of this review, it was determined which performances elevated former participants to a “Legend” status.   Race historian and ten year club member Michael Schramm has worked hard to create the “Top 50 Male and Female Legends of the St. George Marathon.  Fifty men and fifty women were selected, which based on their efforts during the marathon, clearly separated themselves as legends of the St. George marathon. 
During 2011, we will have our 100,000th finisher, so to select only 50 men and 50 women and call them legends, was quite the challenge.  But in the end, we truly feel like these individuals are deserving of this recognition.
Beginning Wednesday April 13, we will reveal the legends, with two men and two women listed each week on Wednesday leading up to the race.  A short biography listing their accomplishments through the years will be included.  The #1 and #2 male and female will be named in the week before the 2011 race.  To start this process, on April 6 we will list separately, 35 male and 35 female who didn’t quite make the Legend list, but are deserving of an Honorable Mention.
