Tony Booth

Posted by speedygeoff on Sunday, September 01, 2013 with 1 comment
In August this year, Jenny and I spent 24 days on a tour of outback Queensland.

On our sixth day we met up with Tony Booth at Millaa Millaa Falls, just "around the corner" from Tony and Chris's property in the Atherton Tablelands.


Tony was one of the best Veteran athletes in Canberra in his day. He is still running, now 75 years old.

  1. Hi Tony!

    You missed his greatest achievement: breaking 60 minutes at age 60 in the 14k City to Surf!
