2019 was the 43rd 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. 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.
