Cliff Young
Australia Crest

Former marathon shuffler born on 5th May, 1921 and potato farmer from Colac, Victoria.

In 1983, at 61 years of age, he caused a sensation when he won the Westfield Sydney to Melbourne road race. Whilst the other runners slept at night, Cliff kept on a'runnin'.

He then married a younger and now ex-wife Mary.

Watch out folks, Cliff still runs 20km every morning before breakfast.
