Maribyrnong Weekly
2nd Mar, 2011

THE inaugural Maribyrnong Gift will be held this Sunday at Pennell Reserve in Braybrook from noon.
The event will be co-hosted by the StAndrews Cricket Club and the Victorian Athletic League.

The main race will be the 120-metre Mynt Lounge Open Men's Gift.

Entrants for the main race include Queenslander and 2009 Stawell Gift winner Aaron Stubbs.

"It has taken us by surprise," gift committee member Terry O'Donnell said.

"Originally we expected to get 350 entrants but it's finished up with 500."

Entries have also been registered from South Australia, Western Australia and rural and metropolitan Victoria.

Heats for the main gift start at 1.55pm with all runners gunning for the first prize of $1200.

Six competitors will advance to the Mynt Lounge Gift final, which is scheduled for 5pm.

Organisers are expecting more than 500 spectators.

Other events on Sunday will include the 120-metre Mick Bouchard women's handicap final at 2.45pm, and veteran, junior and novice heats, semi-finals and finals.
