parkrun are supporting International Women's day (IWD) held on the 8th March 2020.
One of parkrun partner's - Sport England has created a new campaign "This Girl Can" which is supporting International Women's day (IWD)
The objective is for a International parkrun celebration event at parkrun locations which are female focused on Saturday 7th March 2020 at 9am.
parkrun and Sport England research shows us 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.
The purpose is to celebrate and support women continuing to participate in sport, it will still be the normal format for parkrun. Free timed 5K event for everyone starting at 9am.
The event on the 7th March 2020 is not just for women everyone is welcome , as you know Dartford is welcoming to everyone who wants to partake in our parkrun.
We will update further once we have more details of the event.
We look forward to seeing you in Dartford Central park for a 9am start.
