Join us for a 5k and 10k off road trail event with a super sprouty Christmas theme, our 3k Pyjama Express or the amazing Rudolphs Revenge 10k 'night time trail run'
All our Christmas events have been hugely popular and great fun for us, so we're really please to be bringing a big collection of Christmas events to the wonderful Normanby Hall Country Park.
It's a perfect day out for the family and running clubs... we've got space for your club tent and great facilities to keep you amused for the day, either running or cheering on your club mates!
The Great Sprout Scuttle 5k & 10k:
A trail run in fantastic surroundings on a lovely course, (based on Decembers weather expect to be seeing a few muddy spots ... but it's a lovely off road trail run and normally great running conditions (and you get to see the deer).
We're have a 5k & 10k option on the day :)... The 5k is the DOG friendly event!
The event is held on a 5k loop (so 10k is two loops... you could have probably worked that out!)
EVERYDAY WERE BRUSSELING!
The Pyjama Express 3k:
Our great value fun festive family fun run and for 2023 we will be partnering up with Lindsey Lodge to bring a special Pyjama Express twist to the event .... so get your Jim Jams ready!!
Bring the family, the dog, the grandparents and everyone for this 3k festive walk, jog, wheel, woof or run (it's wheel chair, buggy and friendly dog friendly)
An interactive 3k run or walk around a themed route in your pyjamas!
Get ready for fun themed stalls on the route!
- Grab your candy cane
- Snaffle your cookies!
- Pick up your take away hot chocolate gift!
- Get your ticket stamped (and visit our very own train!)
- Then pick up your well deserved BIG Christmas medal (maybe through the snow!)
The event is set off in waves of up to 150 throughout the afternoon, the event is not timed and lots of fun :)
*We asked that under 9's on the course are accompanied, we also ask that everyone joining in the run purchases an entry ticket, ho ho ho :)
We know Santa only picks the best of the best to pull his sleigh, so this course was designed by lead reindeer Rudolph, to make sure the sleigh team has 'the right stuff' to deliver the best Christmas ever!
Heading out from the Hall and out of the main park grounds, you disappear off into the winter wonderland woods, past the Deer park for two 5k loops so you get to enjoy the 'night'.
Earn your antlers and whatever you do ...DON'T FEAR THE DEER!
ps: you need a head torch!!!
The 'ultimate' Santa endurance challenge!
You start the day at 11:30 with the 10k Great Sprout Scuttle, then from 14:30 you join the Pyjama Express 3k event .... in the evening you join the final event another 10k but in the dark with the Rudolphs Revenge!
It's a great way to earn your Christmas treats and a great option if you fancy running for charity :) ... we've given free spots to our charity partners, or you could run for your own charity, a nice thing to do at Christmas.
.... HO HO HO runners!

As a company we are very much aware of the importance of Lindsey Lodge in our local area and some members of staff have first hand knowledge of the amazing work they do, so when we were approached regarding offering support, it really wasn’t a difficult decision for the Community Fund Committee to make, they are very worthy recipients.
