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.
