We are really looking forward to the International Women's Day parkrun on 7th March 2020 - it is also our 5th birthday !
The IWD parkrun celebration is being supported by This Girl Can , a campaign created by parkrun partner Sport England.
Research shows that women are much less likely to participate in parkrun , this may be for a number of reasons , body image , fear of the unknown, fear of being too slow, finishing last , don't do any exercise , i'm too old are a number of the reasons
We are joining in parkruns worldwide to encourage and a celebration of female participation on this day.
We would like to encourage parkrunners to bring along a female friend, family or work colleague especially one who has never been to parkrun before .
To celebrate the day we are encouraging everyone to wear purple and bring cake as it is our birthday as well !!
I'm so excited to celebrate this at Halifax and will be proud to be your RD on the 7th March
See you then
