It is with regret that I announce that John Walker sadly passed away last night, Thursday, 19th June 2015, after a long illness aged 76 years.
John was a founder member of Centurion Running Club formerly Centurion Joggers in the 70’s and was a prolific organiser of road races in the area including the first World Veterans 10k & 25k Championships held at the NEC. He was also a prominent coach helping many athletes to achieve their ambitions. No mean performer himself, John always ran until a debilitating virus curtailed his activities.
John was involved for many years with MMAC and helped set up the course for the National Masters Open Road Relays held every year at Sutton Park.
Our condolences go to his wife, Janet, to his family and many friends in athletics.
Funeral details to be announced.
