Farewell to John Gilmour

Posted on

The sun seemed to shine blessings on this special day

It was wonderful to see so many Masters Athletes at John Gilmour’s funeral today which included many moving tributes, bagpipes and the Last Post.

A fitting farewell for such a WA icon as admired and beloved by all

Members will be relieved to know that Ivan Brown, who was briefly taken unwell at the funeral service, is fine and is now at home after a hospital check-up.

Cross Country Championships

Posted on

As you know our Club Cross Country Championships are next Sunday at Jorgensen Park.

The course is a 2.7k loop and you can do 1, 2 or 3 laps.

  • If you want to enter the Championships (under 70 yrs) you need to do 3 laps which is 8k

However due to the new ruling by  WMA and AMA for the Cross Country distance to be 6k for 70+ we are amending our distance to follow suit so:

  • If you are in the 70 yrs and over age brackets you need to run 2 laps to enter the Championships

Medals are awarded for the first, second and third in each age group for men and women

Vale John Gilmour

Posted on

We are sorry to advise members that our beloved Patron John Gilmour OAM has passed away on Wednesday 1 August 2018.

Apart from being a WA legend in athletics he was one of the founding members of our club in 1974.

He served on the committee for 6 years and  has been our Club Patron from 2009. He was also inducted into the AMA Hall of fame in 2009.

As well as setting many records at World level he gave back so much more to athletics over his life initiating new clubs and coaching young athletes. You could not meet a kinder hero.

After a great innings of 99 years he still attended our club events and regularly presented our club awards.

An inspiration to us all, he will be dearly missed but will live on in the history books and in our hearts.
