GEMMA CHOWN

NORTHAMPTONSHIRE

Gemma is a mum of one with a passion for running and encouraging others to take up running. She has run many race distances herself, ranging from 5Ks through to a 50K ultra, including running the Virgin Money London Marathon in 2018. She also regularly volunteers at her local parkrun and junior parkrun.

“I love to inspire people to run, in particular the next generation of runners. My own daughter has picked up a love of running as a result of seeing my husband and I enjoy the sport. She regularly takes part in parkrun and family runs and it is fantastic to see the many benefits that running can bring to people young and old. I am delighted to be in charge of Schools Half Marathon Northamptonshire and I can’t wait to help school pupils in the area achieve their very own half marathon.”
