The 8th March is International Womens Day and to celebrate, on Saturday 7th March parkrun are organising a global female-focused parkrun celebration, #IWDparkrun, supported by This Girl Can, a campaign created by our partner Sport England.
To mark the event, we are looking to fill as many volunteer roles as possible with women and girls as well as:
- Encouraging female friends, colleagues or family to attend for the first time
- Dressing in purple (parkrun's chosen colour for the event)
- Celebrating with friends using the This Girl Can selfie frame
For the first time this year, we had less than 500 runners this week - we "only" had 498 runners!
24 people were brand new to parkrun and 16 others were new to Scunthorpe parkrun - welcome one and all, we hope you'll be back soon!
66 athletes recorded new personal bests and representatives of 23 different clubs took part.
Congratulations to Francis McSharry on his 10th parkrun and to Jayne Eaton on her 250th!
Well done to Max Boggon on his 11th parkrun too (we missed his 10th last week!).
We also had visitors from Barnsley this week - Jane and David Brookes - who celebrated David's 300th parkrun with us - thank you!
The event was made possible by 26 volunteers - THANK YOU all, it was a bit cold standing around but great job by everyone again.
