Who We are

Pete Luxford
Pete LuxfordFounder of the club and Club Captain; Pete has a true passion for showing that anyone can run if they are given the right encouragement and coaching. A Personal Trainer in Stotfold with 9 years running experience Pete devotes a huge amount of time in coaching the beginner section of the club, building confidence and ability. He has coached well over 100 beginners, many of whom have gone from barely running for 60seconds to completing marathons in a couple of years.

Pete’s favourite distance is the ultra-marathon – races over 26.2 miles. Some would say it’s because he is exceptionally fit but the truth is it’s just an excuse to run a lot slower and eat more food. Notable achievements in 2014 were running 2 marathons under 5 hours on the same day, and completing 100k in the Adidas 24hr Thunder Run.

About the Author

I am a Personal Trainer, Running Coach and ultra runner based in Hitchin, Baldock and Letchworth with 9 years experience. I strongly believe that everyone can run, but many of us don’t know how to start. Running Clubs, like any other new experience can be daunting so I am dedicated to making everyone feel welcome, regardless of ability.
