News Release: Queens of Speed Virtual 5km

Who will be crowned the fastest female region in the UK? Join our fun virtual 5km in support of Refuge and be counted

Runners the world over have been missing their daily Saturday fix of Parkrun. But this Saturday May 30th is different.

Join the Girls Run the World Virtual 5km in support of Refuge.

Run it fast, slow, or walk-run …but take part and be counted! This is not just about you but about your team – choose whether you run for the North of the UK or the South (even if you live in Australia).

Our team at head office will then get to work on Monday morning and collate all the results to see which region is the fastest, North or South.

So, if you’ve been missing your Parkrun fix – or your motivation in general, join us for a great cause on Saturday 30th…the fate of your region, for Refuge and for your own running motivation!


It’s free to enter but we are asking for a small donation to our campaign for Refuge – just £2 could make a difference to helping someone escape an abusive situation. Our you can purchase an event tee, with 20% of profits to the charity.
