International Womens 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 Womens 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 much less likely to participate in parkrun, and we are taking steps to change that.
The running of this event, and the roster will be 'ladies only' - officially its a takeover.
Dress code is strictly PURPLE only - what a chance to show off those purple volunteer shirts.
We ask all our female registered participants to bring along a female friend, family member or work colleague that has yet to sample the delights of the parkrun experience.
We are looking to promote the event with a local charity
