Jo Houghton

Hi I'm Jo and I my passion is introducing people to the experience of running as I really believe it has amazing properties to make everyone feel better physically and mentally. I only really started running in my mid-40's and I began by coming to Heaton Park Runners RunTogether group - I didn't think running with a group was my thing but I found that being with other runners of all abilities inspired me to try and get a bit better each week. I'm now a qualified coach in running fitness and keen to share my knowledge and love of running with everyone in the group.
