Back To Race List

International Womens Day (IWD) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women, along with a call for gender equality.

Challenge yourself with a 5k or 10k run, jog or walk.  The virtual charity challenge can be completed in your own time from any location you choose, from Monday 8th March to Sunday 14th March.  The campaign theme for 2021 is ‘Choose to Challenge’.  A challenged world is an alert world, and from the challenge comes change.  So, let’s all #Choose to Challenge.

Purple is the official colour for IWD.  You can also show your support by wearing purple during the challenge.
