7th March – Bring along a friend and wear purple if you can, to celebrate International Women’s Day.

International Women’s Day 7th March.

It has been said before that Conkers parkrun is full of enthusiasm and encouragement. Infact we are often onboard with anything that will open the parkrun door to others.

On Saturday 7th March International Women’s Day is celebrated at parkrun. It would be great if you would join us and bring along a female family member, colleague or friend. As always you can volunteer, walk, run or a combination of all options. If you want to come along and watch you can, although we would encourage you to walk your way around the course and get a real feel of parkrun.

There are many reasons people are reluctant to come along for that 1st time, it is normally linked to the person's expectations and perception of the unknown and parkrun. We can show you, that you will not be too slow, your age isn’t important, you don’t need to come along in a group and it doesn’t matter if you haven’t volunteered before. We will be pleased to see you.

At Conkers, we have a walking group leader, you can walk ahead or drop behind, the pace is yours. The final finishers are always our tail walkers. As long as you are moving forward that is all we ask. Actually we ask 2 things, that you move forwards and that you register with parkrun and bring along your printed barcode. Although if you are a last minute decider you can take part without a barcode, it means your name won’t appear in the results. On 7th March we ask a 3rd thing, if you are able to, please wear purple to show your support for #IWD.

See you at 8.45 for the first timers briefing. Please join us afterwards for a drink in the cafe.

Take a look at the link below and get yourself a barcode, #DFYB
