International Women’s Day parkrun – 7th March 2020

parkrun research tells us that women are much less likely to participate in parkrun, and parkrun is taking steps to change that.
As part of these efforts parkrun is organising a global female-focused parkrun celebration on Saturday 7 March 2020, the day before International Women’s Day (IWD).
We would love for our parkrun community to join parkruns worldwide in a celebration of female participation on this day.
To mark the occasion we are encouraging existing parkrunners to bring along a female friend, family member or a work colleague, especially one who has never been to parkrun before.
If you wish you may also dress in purple (parkrun's chosen colour for the day, and the official colour of IWD).
