The Normanby Hall 10k (or the Norman Bee) sell out event is back for it's 6th year and hosted from the Normanby Hall Estate in North Lincolnshire!
ps: a massive thank you to all the runners, team and volunteers who made it a fun and Covid safe event for everyone in 2020 :)
We will once again be running the event in line with our 'Covid prevention' plans. Here's a few things to expect:
- We start a little earlier (more time for cake throughout the day)
- A staggered rolling start over a 30 minute period
- Nice clear finish line with a well planned out athlete flow system
- Plenty of space and extra things such as hand-wash stations and one way systems
- All the results are based on your chip time (when you cross the start and finish)
For our runners you don't need to think about too much on the day, we make everything very straight forward for you. Just be nice, be considerate of others and take five mins to have look through the information pack and watch the pre event day race brief video.
Join us virtually?
If you're not quite race ready or can't join us for the 'physical' event , then you also have the option to join the event virtually, and still received the awesome medal and your Wildflower seeds! Just select the virtual option on the entry page
You can also see all the virtual event results as they are submitted here.
The virtual entries will close Sunday the 20th, in order that we can post out your medal, number and wildflower seeds.
The 10k route takes you out and about through lovely local villages with a finish in front of the main hall :)
This event, linking in with the local Burton in Bloom theme, helps to support the Bumblebee Conservation Trust Charity (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 best dressed Bee trophy!
We also give away a packet of Bee friendly wildflower seeds to every competitor at the finish line to help support our pollinating pals.
Fully chip timed, with some road closures and some open roads. Free parking, finish line snack and a Bee themed medal plus special Worker Bees, helping to make the event great for everyone involved. Plus a great day out at Normanby Hall Country Park after the event :)
This event is high on the list of favourite all time 10k courses for many runners.... it's sooooo pretty!
See you soon!

“2021 is the year to Bee the Change!
The Bumblebee Conservation Trust’s new Bee the Change campaign is all about simple, quick micro-actions people can do to make their postcodes more bumblebee-friendly. It doesn’t matter if you live in the city or the countryside. If you have a garden, a flower pot – or no outdoor space at all. You can Bee the Change wherever you live!
The below website
www.bumblebeeconservation.org/beethechange is full of free resources to help inspire you to take action for bumblebees. Through the campaign, people can pledge to Bee the Change and carry out quick and simple micro-actions like spotting nearby bumblebees, growing bee-friendly plants, creating wild bumblebee havens, and spreading the #BeeTheChange message with your friends, families and local communities.
We've gone for a flowery theme this year :-) Last years' t- shirt was loud and proud in a vibrant yellow, but this year we've opted for a Royal Blue instead!
We've got some available to buy 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 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.
