When he’s not working, Mr Hustaix enjoys a wide range of hobbies and interests, including swimming and playing rugby, and he’s a keen cook, particularly of pastries and Parisian brasserie-style dishes. Mr Hustaix is an amateur hiker and has completed a 6-day hike and a 16-day hike in the Valais region of Switzerland and on the Stevenson Trail in France, respectively.

This half marathon is the largest sports event in the Grand Duchy, which sees thousands of runners streaming through the streets of the city. The topography of the route makes it particularly appealing, winding its way past historic fortifications, the green gorge of the Petrusse Valley and more.
