We are pleased to announce that on Saturday 7th March, Raphael parkrun will be helping to celebrate International Women’s Day! We are encouraging as many women and girls as possible to join us on the day, especially those who may have signed up and not yet joined us at a parkrun or those who may not have been for a while. Of course, as always, everyone is welcome at parkrun - this is not a female only day!

We have chosen to help celebrate IWD as parkrun 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.

So why not encourage female friends, family members or work colleagues to come along to walk, jog, run or volunteer?

This event will be supported by the This Girl Can campaign and parkrun partners Sport England.
