This Girl Can 5k
This Girl Can is a celebration of active women who are doing their thing no matter how well they do it, how they look or even how red their face gets. Active Newcastle want to help women overcome the fear of judgement that is stopping too many women and girls from joining in and leading active lives.
2018 is a special year as it marks the celebration of 100 years of women (over the age of 30) being allowed to vote. To mark this we want to show how equality for women can transpose to being active in any way you want.
Show your support and join us for the celebration of women being Active in Newcastle. Come and meet local women and girls who have started feeling that "they can" and help us celebrate local women getting active.
The event is taking place on International Women’s Day with the theme of 100 years of women’s vote. With that in mind please dress in the colours of the suffragettes (white, purple, green) and for our warm up, be prepared to be led on a “march” around exhibition lake as a tribute to the suffragette march 100 years ago. The main event is a This Girl Can 5k walk, run, and cycle (*bikes available upon request) or even just come and soak up the atmosphere and cheer your friends and family on.
The event is open to females and children providing they can walk 5k. Please note there may be male stewards and marshals helping at the event
