Wow! what an incredible first two years of the hedgehog half marathon. We have been overwhelmed by the feedback and it's filled up to capacity each time, we did add more entries for 2020 but we've now removed these due to Covid-19.
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!
