This Girl Can teams up with parkrun to celebrate International Women’s Day
International Women’s Day parkrun is all about celebrating female participation and we would love to welcome as many women and girls as possible to parkrun on Saturday 7 March.
In England #IWDparkrun will be supported by This Girl Can, a campaign created by our partner Sport England.
Women and girls are being encouraged to celebrate International Women’s Day by joining their local parkrun.
Those already park running are encouraged to bring a female friend, colleague or family member along, and everyone is invited to join the celebration online at #IWDparkrun and #ThisGirlCan.
A dedicated page is live on the parkrun website to find out more about your local International Women’s Day parkrun, as well as information to help those taking part for the first time.
Find your nearest participating event using the map, locations in the link above with a This Girl Can logo have let us know that they will be hosting a special #IWDparkrun. Regardless of whether your local event is hosting an #IWDparkrun or not, every single parkrun event will welcome you with open arms. Click on any event to find out more information. You can see where to meet, a description of the course, facilities, and specific event team contact details if you’ve got any queries ahead of the day.
All you need to do is register here, then just turn up on the day with your printed barcode.
