AURA regrets having to let everyone know of the passing of our Association’s Hall of Fame member Shirley Young.

Shirley’s achievements included establishing numerous world and Australian age group records in all ultra distances from 50 kms to 24 hours.

Her 20 World Records were amassed over a decade in three age groups 60-64; 65-69 and 70 to 74. At 70 years of age she ran an amazing 176kms in 24 hours, a record which many believe will never be broken.

AURA passes on its condolences to Shirley’s family and friends.
