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

At Telford, 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.

Of course everyone is welcome at parkrun – always!

But the 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.

So we invite you all to come along on 7th March 2020 for a parkrun celebrating female participation. Please do talk to the women and girls that you know about how great parkrun is, support them to overcome any worries that they have and come along, have fun and enjoy the friendly tea/coffee/cake at the end.

 

***Appeal for funds to support Telford parkrun***

As you all know one of the fundamental principles of parkrun is that it is free for all, forever! However parkrun wouldn’t be possible without donations which help to purchase the kit needed for the events to function.

We know how important your results are to you and in recent weeks we have been having multiple issues relating to worn out and missing finish tokens and the 6.5 year old laptop we use to process your results. We urgently need to replace the laptop and purchase a new set of finish tokens.

We can’t do this without some much needed funds, so we are making a rare appeal to the Telford parkrun community to ask for donations so that we can continue to provide accurate results in a timely manner.
Whether you donate £1 or more, every bit will go towards keeping Telford running.

How to donate:
parkrun volunteers are not permitted to handle money, but there are two ways that you can provide funds which go directly towards helping the Telford event.
1. Online. From the “About Us” section of the Telford parkrun website click on the "donate to parkrun" button in the middle of the screen about half way down the page. https://www.parkrun.org.uk/telford/aboutus/
2. By cheque, please email: accounts@parkrun.com explaining that you intend to make a donation for Telford parkrun.
Thanks in advance for supporting all Telford parkrunners.

Telford parkrun – Run Report 23/11/13 – Written by Chris Tucker

It was great to see so many people braving the cold weather at Telford Town Park this morning to take part in our 36th parkrun. Our numbers were swelled by some of Walsall Arboretum’s regular participants, including the Shabbarunners, whose winter tour started with a trip to us here this morning (secretly they were checking out the course for the Telford 10k in a couple of weeks time!)

One of the Shabbas has written their own blog on today's run, which can be found here if you're interested.

Telford Parkrun 23/11/13
Chilling (or should that be warming up) at the finish!

Given the frost and ice, a special mention to today’s volunteers, who had the unenviable task of standing around trying to keep warm whilst you were all running and the course marshall’s in particular who were quick to point out any parts of the course that were particularly slippy.

There are also some great photos of today’s run – check them out on the photo tab above.
