On Saturday 7 March 2020, the day before International Women’s Day, lots of parkruns around the world, including Maidenhead, will be hosting a female-focused parkrun celebration. #IWDparkrun will be supported by This Girl Can, a campaign created by parkrun partner Sport England.
parkrun 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. #IWDparkrun is a fantastic opportunity to encourage more women and girls to participate in parkrun events all over the world.
So why not join in with the celebrations by bringing a female friend, colleague or family member and walk, jog, run or volunteer together!
