The Normanby Hall 10k (or the Norman Bee) on June 30th is hosted from the Normanby Hall Estate in North Lincolnshire. In 2017 the venue launched the Tour of Britain stage.
The 10k route takes you past the crowd before heading out through local villages during the annual Burton in Bloom festival. Local villages make their gardens look in their best possible shape and get decked out with flags and bunting ready for the runners.
This event, linking in with the Burton in Bloom theme, helps to raise awareness for Bumblebees (wildlife is another passion of the Curly’s team) so expect Bee based updates, Bee themed t-shirts as an option and many athletes deciding to go “full bee”, dressing up for the occasion. This has led to a special best dressed Bee trophy! Curly’s (in conjunction with the team at Habitat Aid) gave away a packet of Bee friendly wildflower seeds to every competitor (which is a first for goodie bags!)
The event is fully chip timed, with some road closures and some open roads. Free parking, access to the park for the day, finish line cake and a Bee themed medal plus special Worker Bees, helping to make the event great for everyone involved.
This event is high on the list of favourite all time 10k courses for many runners.
See you soon!
The information pack is full of information (odd that!) so have a read through :)

Beeeeeessss!... of course it's Bee themed! This year we've worked with the North Lindsey College Design students to come up with the design.
Simply add a t-shirt when you enter. If you have entered but would like to add one, then you can log in and amend your entry here.
We will have very limited spares on the day for sale.
It's our second home and a great venue for events.
Normanby Hall is a stunning Regency mansion, set in an idyllic 300 acre estate in the heart of North Lincolnshire.
There has never been a better time to visit, with the region's first Go Ape, two new playground areas, new membership packages and a programme of events. As well as the Hall, Farming Museum, Gift Shop and Stableyard Café, enjoy historical woodland and a leisurely stroll around the Walled Garden.
We've worked with Habitat Aid to bring you your pack of Bee friendly UK wildflower seeds. We owe them a big thanks:-)
Habitat Aid is a Somerset based business founded in 2008. Habitat Aid promote and sell British native trees, hedging, aquatic plants, wildflower seed and heritage fruit trees, which they source from a community of small specialist UK nurseries and growers. They help support our most important and attractive habitats, including almost all of our wildflower meadows, orchards, ponds, wetlands, hedges and woodland.
We love Bee's and all pollinators- they're so important to our way of life and the natural world around us. The Bumblebee Conservation Trust is passionate about saving bumblebees and protecting their habitats.
Find out how you can support our Bee friends. A little bit of education and a little bit of fundraising can go a long way way.
Looking after our wildlife starts at home. The more we learn about what helps and what damages wildlife the better chance we have of helping our wildlife.
