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.

You can name a hog for a friend for just £2, buy something from the hedgehog shop on the event day or just make a donation straight to the hospital. A donation doesn't have to be financial; the hospital are always looking for volunteers, animal cages, newspaper for bedding, hedgehog food or a bottle of wine (that could be for the volunteers!) just get in touch with the team.
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.
