Sonny Peart took up running in 2012, since when he has completed a dozen marathons, including London, Manchester, Edinburgh and Brighton. Now a trail and ultrarunner, he completed the Centurion Running 50 mile Grand Slam in 2019, and is three quarters of the way through the 2020 100 Mile Grand Slam, with just the postponed South Downs Way 100 to run in June. This year he will also run the 125km Highland Ultra and the 235 mile Deadwater six day ultramarathon. He co-founded Black Trail Runners in July 2020, aiming to increase the participation, inclusion and representation of black people in trail running. When not running or campaigning for diversity on the trails, he performs as a pantomime dame, teaches at King’s College London, and enjoys watching Bielsa ball.
Ally Beaven is a Highlands based hill and ultra runner with a zero percent success rate on the Big Rounds in winter. He is also the author of Broken, a book which tells the stories of the remarkable summer of 2020 when race cancellations and travel restrictions led to an avalanche of long distance running records all over the UK.
