International Women’s Day run 2017

On Wednesday 8 March it’s International Women’s Day. Join us with women all over the globe as we come together to do one of our favourite things - run!

International Women’s Day run 2017

It doesn’t matter where you’re from, what you do for a living or how many miles you have chalked up. International Women’s Day is a moment for ladies of all walks of life to stand together in celebration of women all over the globe, past and present. A day to acknowledge the trail-blazers who lead the way for change, from the unshakeable Suffragettes to Katherine Switzer, and one to inspire future generations who will go on to create even greater social, economic and cultural changes.

It's a great day for all to come together and to celebrate equality, progress and unity. So put on your running shoes, join forces and let's get moving.
