We are saddened to learn of the passing of Steve Mould, who was a prominent and well respected member of PACTRAC back in the 1990's and beyond. In recent year's Steve was keen to get back into the sport he loved and could regularly be seen marshalling at the gate in our Mini-Series.
Back in the day, Steve was a top runner and regularly scored for the PACTRAC team that won the local Frostbite Running League 2-year's in succession in 1996-97 and 1997-98.
He was very proud to have represented GB in the Quadrathlon World Championships; and was a keen kayaker, offering his services as a rescue kayak for our regular Nene Swims. Steve co-promoted the Quadrathlon's at Bluebell Lakes, Tansor; and was often seen out-and-about with his kayak on his car roof.
The following is from Mould's Butchers in Nassington:
"We are normally full of laughter and jokes here at Mould Family Butchers but today, 26th April, is very different as we are so sorry to announce that Simon and his family have lost a dear family member Steve Mould much loved brother and father who was taken from us too soon.
As you know the Mould's have been in Nassington for over 130 years, and Steve was very proud of his family and of the Mould family heritage that is the butchers shop. Simon talks about many memories they had in and around Nassington as they all grew up. From his late 20’s onwards he was representing Britain in the Quadrathlon in Spain, he ran various marathons across the country, running in the elite runners 2 years in a row at the London Marathon and entered Ironman competitions and if that wasn’t enough canoed from Northampton to Hunstanton all of these times raising money for different charities.
In his latter years he faced some difficult times and his family and friends tried to help him along the way, but unfortunately his body wasn’t strong enough to fight this anymore, we must remember him for all he did and as a lovely brother and father and will all miss him dearly.
RIP Steve Mould ❤️ "
Further update from Mould Butcher's:
"Just to let everyone know that Steve Mould’s funeral will be held on Monday 17 May at 11am. The funeral will leave from the butchers shop at 10.45am where it will then make it’s way to Nassington Church for the service at 11am. From the 17 May new guidelines come into force and as part of the next step of easing lockdown restrictions, the 30-person legal limit is set to be lifted which means any number of mourners will be able to gather at the church as long as the venue can comply with social distancing.
Nassington church can only accept 60 guests inside safely complying with these rules. Anyone wanting to pay their respects to Steve can attend with this in mind anyone not able to go into the church is welcome to stand outside the church or along the road as the cortège arrives.
After the service the funeral cortege will make its way to Nassington cemetery where there will be a private burial for family and very close friends, this will also be the case for the wake which will take place afterwards at the Queens Head, Nassington. Although restrictions are lifted on the funeral service the numbers are still limited at the wake to 30 people only.
We are asking for family flowers only but if you wish to make a donation in Steve’s memory we have picked two charities which we know Steve would feel passionate about. They are Sports Connections Foundation and Cancer research.
Sports Connections Foundation, Peterborough is a charity that uses Sport To Help And Inspire Children, making dreams come true for children facing life-threatening illnesses.

We also picked Cancer research as Steve raised a lot of money for this charity when doing his sporting events. We will also be having a collection for this at the church.
The Mould family would like thank each and everyone of you for your kind words and support since Steve’s passing. 🙏🏻 "
