The SUB-3 757 exists to encourage the betterment of distance running in the 757, recognize athletes who have put in the time to achieve something truly remarkable, foster a connected-community of elite and sub-elite distance runners, and preserve our community’s marathon running history.

Individuals on the list recorded one of the fastest marathon times in the history of the 757, including the roughly 1.5 million people who currently reside within its boundary. Here you should find all sub-3-hour marathoners who are presently living in or died living in the 757. There is an exception for military personnel and spouses who are deployed but own property in the 757.

If you know names that should be on the list, should be modified, or deleted, please include a link to an official race result and your rationale. If anyone is left off, it is accidental! Please directly link to the best marathon time for an athlete.

Many individuals may have run several sub-3 marathons; the list will only include a marathon PR for each. Thank you, I look forward to adding more names to the list in the coming years!

For individuals who are on the list, feel free to join our Strava Club:
