Cliff Young To Marry His Pen-Pal

Cliff Young To Marry His Pen-Pal

2 Nov 1999
Ultra Marathon Runner Cliff Young, 77, is set to marry again - this time to his Filipona pen pal.

But the Colac potato farmer, who shot to fame 16 years ago when he won the first Westfield Sydney to Melbourne marathon, hasn't met his bride-to-be in person.

He hopes to fly to the Philippines in January to meet Dominga, 40. He has been writing to her and swapping photos for a year.

"I haven't set a date for the wedding yet", said Cliffie yesterday, "I've got to meet her first. But she sounds like a lovely lady and she's pretty good looking too."

Cliff separated from his first wife, Mary Howells in 1989, although they were only divorced six weeks ago.
