Story

Why is MWF doing a parkrun/parkwalk?

MWF wants to raise funds for essential work - supporting women doctors and medical students and improving health for all. We also want to have regional networking events for women doctors, medical students, their friends, families and supporters. parkrun is an excellent way of promoting healthy activity for all.

The hashtag for our events is #MWFparkrun! Sign up for a barcode, wear something purple or white, tag us @medicalwomenuk on Twitter, @medicalwomenuk on instagram or Medical Women's Federation on Facebook.

What is parkrun?

parkruns are free, weekly, community events all around the world. Saturday morning events are 5k and take place in parks and open spaces. parkrun is a positive, welcoming and inclusive experience where there is no time limit and no one finishes last. Everyone is welcome to come along, whether you walk, jog, run, volunteer or spectate. Since October 2022, parkwalk is also being promoted.
