Richard Houghton

Hi I’m Richard
I am absolutely delighted to become an ambassador for Events of the North. This role fits perfectly into my love for sporting events and running. I am very excited to show off and promote our brilliant Northeast running scene and what we have to offer.

Having achieved the 6-star medal for completing the Abbott World Marathon Majors in 2019 to running many of the local road and XC races for my club Elswick Harriers over the years in which I’m currently men’s captain, this ambassador role is another great honour.

I have previously run the Sunderland Half Marathon and 10k and this year will be the second time I have ran the fast 5k event which I am really excited about especially with a redesigned course which crosses the Northern Spire Bridge 4 times.
