Hartlepool parkrun will you be staging a special event for International Women's Day on Saturday 7th March 2020. This event will be supported by the This Girl Can campaign, and parkrun UK partners Sport England. 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.
We are asking everyone to bring another female along to parkrun with them be it your best mate, a work colleage or a family member. Make sure they are registered and have printed off their barcodes and bring their barcodes with them. You are also welcome to wear purple, which is the colour parkrun UK have selected for this event or a combination or purple, green and white (colours of the suffragettes). Also, as it is the first Saturday of the month we will still be holding our parkrun pacers day.
Please join us for this event.
