Ten Year Club

The Townsville Marathon has been in existence since 1973 (the 2nd oldest marathon in Australia) and now the results have been collated, to display the number of runs that each competitor has completed over the years.  After a competitor has completed 10 Townsville Marathons they are presented with their own personal permanent marathon number bib.
