City Gift unwrapped

For many years the event has struggled to get off the ground, but the countdown is on to the 2021 Mount Gambier Gift Carnival which ignites at Vansittart Park on Saturday. It will be just the second edition of the special running event in a decade after 2020 was cancelled due to uncertainty around COVID-19 regulations, which followed an eight-year hiatus from 2011. In the tradition of the famous Stawell Gift and Bay Sheffield footraces, around 100 athletes from Adelaide, Victoria and Mount Gambier will start on different handicaps, which means quality backmarkers will be chasing down front markers in a series of races between 70 and 1600 metres in what will be a highly entertaining spectacle. Mount Gambier Gift organiser Natasha...
