There is a special group of runners – known as “Legacy Runners” – who reflect the history, strength, and staying power of the AACR Philadelphia Marathon. Through grit and grace, these road warriors have been with our marathon every (or nearly every) step of the way, participating in at least 15 of our 27 marathons.
The Philly Marathon first recognized Mark Sullivan and Bob Koen as charter legacy runners in 2008. Since then, the Legacy Runners Program has expanded by establishing tiers of participation beginning with 15-year participants and now including runners who have completed 20 and 25 Philadelphia Marathons, either consecutive or cumulative. The highest distinction, Charter Membership, is reserved for those who have run every edition of the Philadelphia Marathon since 1994.
We recognize our Legacies who give true meaning to the word marathon!
