International Women’s Day #IWD parkrun – Sat 7th March 2020

Save the date - Saturday 7th March 2020

We are delighted to be one of the parkrun’s participating in the parkrun celebration of International Women’s Day, also supported by This Girl Can – which you may have seen on social media.

Figures and research show that women are less likely 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. International Women’s Day #IWD parkrun is a fantastic opportunity to encourage more women and girls to participate.There are many barriers that hold people back as #ThisGirlCan has been highlighting. 

Please encourage all women and girls that you know to come along so they can have fun, enjoy the friendly atmosphere and see how awesome parkrun is.

As always, men and boys are all still more than welcome to join us too.
