Midmar Mile second entry deadline looms

2007-11-22 00:00

Already among the entries are both the oldest finishers from 2007. Lorna Cochran, who became the oldest woman finisher ever in February this year, will be attempting the race at 84 years of age, while Roy Rees is the oldest male to enter, also at 84. However, he still has a few years to go before challenging the oldest male ever to complete the race - the late Colin Cable holds the record at 89 years.

The Australians will get their shot at a free entry to compete at the Midmar Dam classic when they tackle the annual Gold Coast Mile on December 2. The winning male and female will compete in the Midmar Mile, with Melissa Gorman the favourite once again after winning both the ladies' events last time out.

Entry forms can now be obtained at most Game Discount stores throughout the country.

The annual Game Charity Challenge aims at raising in the region of at least R1 million for various charities identified by the Midmar Mile. Entries are now also available for the USN Lake Heritage Three Quarter Mile swim, the last chance to get in a Midmar Mile seeding swim.
