On 7 March we're excited to be joining the parkrun celebration of International Women's Day at Marlborough Common, in partnership with This Girl Can. As always, everyone - male and female - is welcome! But this is a day when we'd especially like to encourage and celebrate female participation.
We would love it if our parkrunners could persuade a female friend, neighbour, family member or colleague to come along with them, especially if they're new to parkrun. We're also hoping to have an all-female volunteer roster for the first time ever. We're normally quite evenly split between men and women, but we think we can do it! Dress in purple, the IWD colour (volunteer 25 shirts are ideal!) and try out our new selfie frame too.
So please save the date, get in touch if you'd like to help, and spread the word among your female friends. Looking forward to turning the Common purple on 7 March!
