Headscarf Hustle – Sunday 10 March 2024

Posted 10th January 2024

Join us in March for the Headscarf Hustle - a 4-mile event for the whole family, in honour of Hull's Headscarf Revolutionaries.

On Mother's Day, run or walk together to celebrate all the women who make a difference in your life.

When: 10am, Sunday 10 March 2024

Where: Humber Bridge Country Park (Ferriby Rd, Hessle, HU13 0HB)

How far: 4 miles

Who for: Everyone!

How much: £8 per person (free for under 15 years, must be accompanied by an adult and booked on to the event)

Bonus: entry includes a headscarf (of course!)

New for 2024, the Headscarf Hustle is a fun and friendly 4-mile run/walk which, this year, will take place across the Humber Bridge.

The event is open to everyone – adults and children. And all abilities – you are welcome to run, walk or wheel the four miles. Take part solo or bring your family or friends/colleagues. (But no dogs, please.) We do recommend that any child 'running' the event follows the UK Athletics guidance about age-suitable distances. Younger children in buggies are welcome too. Note that the event will not be timed, but if you would like to record your time, you certainly can.

As well as being a great opportunity to get active, the event will also be a fundraiser. A portion of your £8 entry fee will be donated to Headscarf Pride's campaign for a statue in memory of Hull's Headscarf Revolutionaries – the four local women who campaigned to improve safety at sea after the Triple Trawler Disaster of 1968 and saved countless lives as a result.

At the 4-mile Headscarf Hustle, walk or run a mile for each of these four inspirational women! And on Mother's Day too (and just days after International Women’s Day) – the perfect time to celebrate the Headscarf Revolutionaries and every woman who makes a difference in your life.

The Headscarf Hustle is being organised by Fitmums & Friends and Headscarf Pride. Explore this website to learn more about Fitmums & Friends. Find out more about Headscarf Pride on social media: Facebook, Instagram, X and LinkedIn.
