The organisers of the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival would like to congratulate a very special group of dedicated runners who have been inducted into the Blue Line Legends club in 2012, as the only participants to have completed every single Blackmores Sydney Marathon since its inception in 2001.

These dedicated harriers reflect the spirit, perseverance and dedication that makes marathon running such a unique and special accomplishment. Year after year, these runners overcome the greatest individual endurance challenge - completing a marathon! We take our hat off to you all! Congratulations.
