Griffin Club

The Griffin Club is an exclusive club for those people who have completed 10 or more Canberra Marathons. The club now has 61 members.
To recognise their contribution to the Canberra Marathon, Griffins are eligible for the following benefits:

  • a discounted entry to future Canberra Marathons
  • a souvenir T shirt in which to show off
  • a mesh racing singlet and shorts to wear in future Canberra Marathons
  • special recognition in the race program and on this web site!

Graham Burke is the convenor of the Griffin Club. If you believe that you are eligible for membership, please write to Graham with details of the years that you have completed the race and your times. Graham’s address is 4 Colo Place; Kaleen ACT 2617 or you can email him at gburke@adgp.com.au.

The old Oxford dictionary defines a Griffin as "a fabulous creature with eagle's head and wings and a lion's body" which is the emblem you see on the T shirts and racing gear worn by those people who have completed 10 or more Canberra marathons. It is also an appropriate name for this group, given that each of the 25 Canberra Marathons have been based on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin.
