Pierre Penda

Pierre started running in 2010 with a friend who was raising awareness for colon cancer. He later joined Runningnerds and the Atlanta Track Club before completing his first half marathon – Publix in March 2014.

Pierre enjoys running with friends and training with others so much so that he signed up to run 26.2 miles for the Rock n Roll New Orleans in Feb 2016 so that he could have “fun” with his running buddies. He has completed numerous races in Atlanta – 5k, 10ks, half marathons and a few full marathons nationally including the Chicago Marathon in Oct 2017.

Pierre runs with Run Smyrna and West Midtown Run Club most weeks and can be spotted on the Silver Comet Trail on any givenĀ Saturday.

Pierre lives in Powder Springs with his wife and their cool cat Jean Luc.
