Lakes Legends

As a reward for our most loyal, most tenacious and most consistent runners and walkers, each year Running Events induct a new class into the Albany Lakes Summer Series Lakes Legends group.

Qualification: Everyone who records a finish time in all three events in the same Albany Lakes season scores one Lakes Legend point. When you have five points – or five 100% completed seasons (they do not need to be sequential) – you will be inducted into the hallowed halls of the Lakes Legends.

This is not an award that only the elite or naturally gifted can achieve. This is a goal that is truly open to all. It merely requires the dogged determination, tenacity – and good fortune – to be able to consistently finish race after race despite illness, injury, scheduling conflicts, holidays, car breakdowns, sleep-ins and any other challenge that life may throw at you.

On the day you qualify, we will call you and your fellow legends up onto the stage at our special induction ceremony. As your reward for reaching this formidable goal, each Legend is awarded their own commemorative glass trophy and individual legend number. It is a suitable mark for a laudable achievement and your place in this bastion of greatness will be duly recorded below for all to see and admire in perpetuity!
