Vale Shirley Young, 1930 - 2016

Vale Shirley Young, 1930 - 2016
The Medibank Melbourne Marathon Festival was saddened this week to learn of the death of Shirley Young, one of the pioneers of female distance running and the face of our race until 2008 when Alzheimers Disease forced her into an aged care facility. Her husband, Ron, himself a fine runner in his day and regular Melbourne Marathoner, lovingly told of how he used to visit her each day and often read her the following excerpt from The Wall.

We extend our condolences to Ron, her daughter Lorraine Jachino and the rest of Shirley’s family and acknowledge what a truly inspiring female distance runner she was.
