Vale Ken Matchett

Posted on March 12, 2008 by

Was sad news today to read that Melbourne Ultra runner, Ken Matchett had passed away.


Ken was eighty five years old and had suffered with a brain tumour over the last few months.

Ken had run over 100 marathons around Australia and also held various World and Australian Ultra Age Group records.

I only had the pleasure of meeting Ken a couple of times. But he always struck me as being a Gentleman who stuck up for what he knew was right.

If anyone needs the details of the Memorial Service, please contact me.
