The Normanby Hall 10k (or the Norman Bee) sell out event is back for it's 5th year and hosted from the Normanby Hall Estate in North Lincolnshire.
The 10k route takes you past the crowd at the main hall 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 medals, t-shirts with 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 at the finish lune to help support our pollinators friends.
Fully chip timed, with some road closures and some open roads. Free parking, access to the park for the day for you, 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.... it's sooooo pretty!
We also host the fully chip timed, medal & sweet based 3k junior event in the grounds of the park ahead of the 10k, this is limited to 150 spots for 2020.
See you soon!
The information pack is full of information (odd that!) so have a read through :)

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.
Beeeeeessss!... of course it's Bee themed! In 2019 we worked with the North Lindsey College Design students to come up with the design and expect 2020 to be even better!
Simply add a t-shirt when you enter. It's too late now to add one to your entry but we will have a few spare on the day :)
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 and they help by donating some of the wildflower seeds we hand out. 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.
