It was a shock to hear the sad news that former fell racer Peter Simpson had died peacefully on 29th September at his home in Peel.
Peter was a regular on the fells in the 70`s recording some top results. His proudest moment came in 1978 when he finished top local and third overall in the Manx Mountain Marathon. A no nonsense runner, Peter was extremely popular and respected by all his rivals. On a personal level I worked with Peter for a number of years when he was a Postman. His other passion in life was sea angling and I and several other Postmen enjoyed many trips out in his boat from Ramsey and then Peel for a days fishing.
Our thoughts are with his family and partner and best friend Cath.
