John Wakefield RIP

Sadly, John Wakefield one of the early members of AVOHK in the 1980’s and a very active runner during that period, has passed away in Hong Kong at the age of 84 after a long battle with cancer.  The picture displays many of the races John took part in.

His most famous exploit in the 1980’s was racing a tram from from Kennedy Town to Shaukeiwan and back.  He won.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his beloved wife and AVOHK supporter, Edith.  John RIP.
