International Women's Day occurs on Sunday 8th March 2020, so to celebrate this we are following parkrun UK and organising a global female-focused parkrun celebration on Saturday 7 March 2020, the day before International Women’s Day.
International Women's Day parkrun #IWD
In the UK, #IWDparkrun will be supported by This Girl Can, a campaign created by our partner Sport England.
Research tells us that women are sometimes less likely to participate in parkrun, and so we hope special events like this will help encourage everyone to take part.
Kent Sport will be joining us to hand out free "This Girl Can" T-shirts!
So go and grab that reluctant friend or family member and suggest they give it a try! Here's a handy blog post from parkrun UK that will walk them through everything they need to know about how to parkrun
