Get running for Meningitis Now on International Women's Day

We’re calling on runners to sign up for a March Accumulator Challenge to help celebrate International Women’s Day and support our work

Get running for Meningitis Now in International Women's Day

Great Run, the online portal encouraging everyone to get moving, is challenging people to complete 15 runs or more during the month of March.

Those wanting to take on the challenge have until 10am next Monday, 8 March, to sign up. Monday is also International Women’s Day, a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

Those completing the March Accumulator Challenge will receive a unique finisher’s medal and digital certificate.

Our Events Manager, Kirsty Owen-Hayward, said: “In 2019, for the first time in Great Run’s history, half of the runners were female - a monumental shift from the situation when Great Run started in 1981.

“Why not put your running shoes on to mark International Women’s Day?”
