Newbiggin-by-the-Sea parkrun will be joining together with other parkrun's all over the world to celebrate International Women's Day by hosting a special event on Saturday 7th March 2020, ahead of International Women's Day the following day.
Parkrun, in partnership with This Girl Can, have launched a special campaign which aims to break down many participation barriers faced by women and girls. At our celebratory event we will be showing our support by encouraging as many women and girls as possible to participate as walkers, joggers, runners and volunteers. It really doesn't matter how fit you are or whether you run, walk or volunteer. We welcome all. To show our support the suggested parkun code of dress on the day is PURPLE.
We would love you to join in the celebrations by bringing along a female friend, colleague or family member and walking, jogging, running or volunteering. You could even just come along to cheer all the participants on or just come and watch and maybe have a coffee with our friendly team in Cafe Bertorelli's post event.
Look forward to seeing you on Saturday 7th March. Continue reading
