We are proud to be supporting #ThisGirlCan to celebrate International Women’s Day at Bolton parkrun on Saturday 7 March.
Research shows across the world, women are less likely than men to take part in parkrun. IWD parkrun is a fantastic opportunity to encourage more women and girls to participate in parkrun events all over the world and we would appreciate it if you could spread the word.
We are asking all our regular runners and volunteers to join in the celebrations and if you can bring along a female friend, colleague or family member and walk, jog, run or volunteer with us.
The campaign will show that parkrun is for everyone, no matter your age, background, fitness level or gender (we are still encouraging our male runners and volunteers to join the event). And although IWDparkrun is being held on one day, it is hoped that the impact will be far more long-lasting!
