This Girl Can teams up with parkrun again for IWD

The This Girl Can campaign has once again teamed up with parkrun to put on the second International Women’s Day parkrun.

The first event, back in 2020, saw more than 15,000 additional women and girls taking part as walkers, joggers, runners or volunteers.

We know that the gender gap in activity levels persists, though, with women less likely than men to take part in parkrun events – despite registering for the weekly 5km activity in higher numbers.
