International Women’s Day ( 7 Mar 2020) – This Girl Can

International Women's Day ( 7 Mar 2020)

We will be staging a special event for International Women's Day

This event will be supported by the This Girl Can campaign, and our partners Sport We’d love it if you could share them to help us encourage as many women and girls as possible to join us on the day.

Why are we being encouraged to celebrate International Women’s Day?

Our 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. IWD parkrun is a fantastic opportunity to encourage more women and girls to participate in parkrun events all over the world. 

Can men still participate in parkrun on this day?

Yes, everyone is always welcome to participate at parkrun!
