Pete Spelman

Pete SpelmanIt is with great sadness that Winchester & District AC (WADAC) must advise that Pete Spelman, its successful club Chairman between 2013 and 2017, has passed away peacefully, after a protracted illness that was bravely endured.

Pete is left behind by his wife, Michele, and two daughters Gabi and Harriet, both of whom have remained WADAC members despite being away.

Pete is remembered as a great athlete, with very strong performances from 800m through to the marathon, as well as being a coach of middle-distance and cross-country groups and also coaching one of the junior endurance groups - quite a Man!

Pete was a terrifically staunch supporter of WADAC and will be sorely missed. He was not only an official who was full of vision for the future of the club, but also a very engaging person who was always interested in how you were getting on.

Put simply a "nice guy", but also as a friend to so many.

Our hearts, our sincere thoughts and our prayers go out to Pete's family and friends at this difficult time.
