Burnham and Highbridge parkrun will be supporting International Womens Day (IWD) on the 7th March. IWD is actually on Sunday 8th March, but parkrun's, who have opted in to this concept, are celebrating on the Saturday.
We are being encouraged to celebrate International Women’s Day, as research shows that, across the world, women are less likely than men to take part in parkrun. Despite the fact that females make 54% of registrations, they are less likely than men to take part in parkrun and to continue participating. IWD parkrun is a fantastic opportunity to encourage more women and girls to participate in parkrun events all over the world.
So lets get recruiting and find as many ladies and girls to come along and run, jog or walk on the 7th.
Guys, you are not left out and we want to see as many of you as possible to come along and take part in support of the IWD initiative.
