parkrun events all over the world are being encouraged to celebrate female participation by hosting a special event on Saturday 7 March 2020, ahead of International Women’s Day the following day. 

 

We would love you to join in the celebrations by bringing along a female friend, colleague or family member and everyone is invited to join the celebration online by using the hashtag #IWDparkrun.

 

parkrun events will be showing their support by encouraging as many women and girls as possible to participate as walkers, joggers, runners and volunteers with a suggested purple dress code on the day.

Today, we are launching a special campaign aimed at addressing and breaking down many of the barriers faced by women and girls and inspiring them to come along to parkrun.

 

The fear of not being fit enough, of being ‘too slow’, of not having volunteered before, of coming on your own or uncertainty about what to expect are just some of the barriers that people face, especially women and girls.

 

The campaign will help show that parkrun is for everyone, no matter your age, background, fitness level or gender. And although #IWDparkrun is being held on one day, it is hoped that the impact will be far more long-lasting!
