Peter has for nearly two decades been a keen ultrarunner with many performances to his name all the way from 6hour & 24hour up to the long multiday events.
As coordinator for the Danish Ultrarunning Team Peter Bøgevig has been an integral part of the success from the moment he stepped in. His positive spirit as well as his dedicated and precise work will be sorely missed. Also as a friend he will be strongly missed. We were all fortunate to have such a friend and capacity in Danish ultrarunning.
His dedication and positive spirit will continue on the road ahead and inspire; indeed friendliness and success can go hand in hand – Jesper Kenn Olsen, Danish National Team Coach
Peter had become the cornerstone of Danish Ultrarunning over the last several years. His constant presence at the Championships was a source of inspiration for Danish runners. He will be missed by his many friends, including me, as we chart out international ultrarunning in the coming years – Nadeem Khan, IAU President
On behalf of the IAU our thoughts are with Peter´s family and the Danish ultrarunning family during these very difficult times.
