History

History

The Melbourne Marathon Spartans club was formed in 1987 when it was realised that more than 80 runners were likely to be running their tenth consecutive race. Brian Dixon who had been Minister for Youth, Sport and Recreation, and Ted Paulin, Race Director for 14 years were instrumental in formation of the club.
