Lace up your trainers, June is running month with AoC Sport and This Girl Can

In partnership with Sport England’s This Girl Can campaign, AoC Sport will be encouraging females to get involved in running throughout June.

Each month, AoC Sport is promoting a different sport or physical activity as part of our work with This Girl Can. We’ve already given weightlifting, group exercise, rowing and cricket a try, and with a number of running events taking place this month including Race for Life, what better time to lace up your trainers.

You can join by getting involved with your local Parkrun event, competing in a more serious race, or simply by jogging round the block, we don’t mind!

AoC Sport staff will also be joining in the fun, so keep an eye on our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages to see us hitting the treadmills and pounding the pavements – and we would love to see your pictures and videos too, whether you’ve been running for years or you’re giving it a go for the first time.

You can even add a This Girl Can caption to your pictures, by visiting through your smartphone, and there’s a dedicated This Girl Can Run Twitter feed too.

Also keep checking the AoC Sport website and social media channels to see what we’re giving a go in July as the summer holidays kick off.
