International Women’s Day – Run Report by Kelly Jackson

Saturday March 7th saw Sewerby parkrun celebrate Internal Women's Day at parkrun #431!

The Sewerby ladies decked in their purple and hi-viz were encouraging, smiley, supportive and organised for the 220 participants. Karen our RD, gave a great informative race brief and set us off to battle the windy cliff path, have our picture captured by Tom to then be blown back up the cliff path before being able enjoy the shelter in the flower gardens and woodland, then into the finish funnel! The course must have been in good form as it witnessed 32 new personal bests but also had 26 first runners.

Our hi-viz heroes were aged from 8 years through to over 70, with runners aged from 5 to 80- we did have a couple of buggy runners which is no mean feat with the woodland, and our regular canine friends used all 4 paws to pull their humans around - parkrun truly is for everyone whether you run, walk or volunteer.

Thank you to Gill, our volunteer co-ordinator, who each week organises and recruits the volunteers so parkrun can happen. If you feel you can offer your time, please email sewerby@parkrun.com and we shall stick you on the roster. It would be amazing to have a rota as strong as Saturday’s.

 

Internation Women’s Day

Calling all ladies.

It is International Women's Day on Sunday 8th March and parkrun is holding a special event in conjunction with This Girl Can on Saturday 7th March to celebrate. Sewerby will be joining in this celebration and we are hoping to fill as many volunteer roles on the day with females as possible. So, if you've been thinking about volunteering then make this your day. Please have a look at the roster & email sewerby@parkrun.com to advise which role you would like to volunteer for.

Also, if you have any female friends, relatives or colleagues that have been considering joining the parkrun family, then please encourage them to register & join us on the day to either, walk, jog, run or volunteer.

And don't forget to wear purple
