Wow! what an incredible first year of the hedgehog half marathon-we have been overwhelmed by the feedback! 

This all on road Half Marathon starts and finishes in the beautiful grounds of Normanby Hall Country Park. The route follows the picturesque Tour of Britain course from 2017. 
With a very special finishing medal for all, chip timing and cake at the finish line oh and of course some hedgehogs will be paying a visit!

We're very happy to be working with local charity Andrew's Hedgehog Hospital once again to help raise awareness of these fabulous animals and support fundraising towards the amazing work this army of volunteers do. 

Watch our facebook event page for the latest updates and begin your fundraising today by following the links further down the page or visit Andrew's Hedgehog Hospital Website.

If you're really feeling the hedgehog theme then feel free to dress up as we will have a special trophy for "esprit de hérisson award" (spirit of hedgehog) on the day. But no pressure to fundraise or dress up if you're just after a great half marathon, then that's what you'll get on this awesome course. 


The information pack is full of information (odd that!) so have a read through :)

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.

The team will be down handing out medals on the day (well we did name the event after them...) so you can have a chat and meet some hedgehogs! 


A cause close to our hearts, our British Wildlife needs all the help it can get.

Looking after our wildlife should start at home. The more we learn about what helps and what damages wildlife the better chance we have of helping our wildlife.
