It is with great sadness that we report the death of John Gilmour OAM on 1 August 2018 at the age of 99.
John was a founding member of the West Australian Masters, a record holder in middle distance and distance events, and a legend in his home state of West Australia, Australia wide, and indeed across the world.
At this year's AMA Championships in Perth, he was at the track every day, and also at the Cross Country venue where he presented many medals. He will be missed by all who knew him.
Entries are now CLOSED for the WMA Championships in Malaga, Spain in September 4th to 16th.
All the information is on the MALAGA 2018 WEBSITE
