Coventry parkun celebration of International Women’s Day – 7 Mar 2020 #IWD

Coventry parkrun will be joining parkruns all over the world in a celebration of female participation by hosting a special event on Saturday 7 March 2020, ahead of International Women’s Day #IWD the following day.

We're hoping to fill as many of the volunteer roles as possible with ladies that week so if you fancy volunteering please let us know at: coventryhelpers@parkrun.com You can view the roster at: https://www.parkrun.org.uk/coventry/futureroster

We would also like to hear from any ladies who'd be prepared to offer their services to pace that Saturday. It would be great to have a range from 20mins - 50mins to support everyone that attends.

If you’d be willing to help please email coventryhelpers@parkrun.com

If you have any questions please let us know.

We'll keep a list of 'taken' pace times here and update it as often as possible.

Thank you

Coventry parkun celebration of International Women’s Day – 7 Mar 2020 #IWD

Coventry parkrun will be joining parkruns all over the world in a celebration of female participation by hosting a special event on Saturday 7 March 2020, ahead of International Women’s Day the following day.

We would love you to join in the celebrations by bringing along a female friend, colleague or family member and walking, jogging, running or volunteering at Coventry parkrun. You could even just come along to watch or cheer.
We will be be showing our support by encouraging as many women and girls as possible to participate as walkers, joggers, runners and volunteers with a suggested purple dress code for the day.

The fear of not being fit enough, of being ‘too slow’, of not having volunteered before, of coming on your own or uncertainty about what to expect are just some of the barriers that people face, especially women and girls. We're hoping to show that parkrun is for everyone, no matter your age, background, fitness level or gender, so do talk about how great parkrun is with the women and girls that you know, and help them overcome any worries or barriers that might be holding them back.

 

21 December 2019

Coventry parkrun is on this morning (21 December)

There is one large puddle on the route which goes across the entire pathway which you will need to go through (twice). You will have wet feet by the time you finish. There are no alternate routes and there will be no diversions - the grass nearby is saturated and slippy.

- Please take your time, enjoy parkrun and run or walk sensibly
- Do come along in your santa suit, elfwear, Christmas hat, jumper, socks .. and enjoy your regular, super, parkrun

 

Christmas is Coming…

Subject to a few more volunteers, we will be holding an additional parkrun on Christmas day at 9am. There won't be an additional Coventry parkrun on New Year’s Day. Our regular Saturday parkruns will take place as normal.
