01 Terra Promessa – Song about Cliff.
Sixty one year old Cliff Young became a household name in 1983 when he beat all of the starters and won the first Westfield Sydney to Melbourne Ultra Marathon. He wasn’t known before the race – but was certainly know after that. Apart from winning the inaugural Westfield Run, Cliff also achieved many other brilliant performances in his ultra career which included several Ultra age records. He was also the “Boy from the Bush” with a larrikin wit and a heart of gold. This endeared him to many people over the years.
Note from the Webmaster – I started this website a few years ago when Cliff passed away. I believe that my collection of newspaper cuttings, photos and articles is the most accurate collection of information that exists about Cliff. I am wrapped that Cliff is now going to be remembered in film and hopefully a book. Proud that I have been of service for people fascinated by his story and helping to continue and remember his story. Even though there is no copyright on this site, I hope that my efforts are appreciated by the Researchers in question. I still have more articles and photos to go online, so watch this space over the next twelve months.
