Jim moved from his Melville home to regional WA several years ago. His bright bubbly attitude was then missed at events. Jim competed as a race walker with MAWA and with the WA Walkers club. Their Jim Turnbull Shield for 100 Miles in 24 Hours for both men and women was donated by Jim, who was one of only two WA walkers to have achieved that feat.
He helped our competitions by working as an official at Championships and also made a donation to the running of the events.
