Active Newcastle are excited to announce that our annual International Women’s Day celebration event is back and it will be under the banner of This Girl Can Newcastle.

2020 is going to be a huge year for #thisgirlcannewcastle with amazing plans to grow the movement across the city, providing more opportunities for women and girls to get active in their own way, whatever that may look like.

Join us to celebrate International Women’s Day at our very popular UV themed event with our optional 1 mile or 5 k “do it your way” event – walk, run, hop, skip or jump - it all counts! Or just come along to show your support and immerse in the celebration.

Apart from celebrating the awesomeness of our northeast local women and girls, we will also be recognising the role that the men and boys in our lives play in supporting our journey to becoming more active. Therefore, we encourage you to bring along your supporters / allies of any gender to participate or cheer you on.

So show your support and gather your troops, hunt out your brightest clothes, pick up some glow-sticks and UV paint and join us for an unforgettable celebration!

This is an inclusive event open to all abilities, gender and ages. The route is suitable for pushchairs and wheelchair users. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult to take part in the 1 mile / 5K route.
