Buzzing along at the Normanby Hall 10K

Normanby Hall 10K buzzes back into town

The 2022 race returns in its usual format.

Fans of the Normanby Hall 10K will be pleased to learn that the energy sapping section near the end has been removed as the course is back on tarmac this year. What hasn’t changed is the event’s support for the Bumblebee Conservation Trust Charity and the packet of bee-friendly wildflower seeds for every runner. 

There's always a hive of activity ahead of the Normanby Hall 10K which takes place on Sunday 26 June at 9.30am. It is organised by Curly’s Athletes who are passionate about nature/wildlife and the environment and have a community-minded ethos where every runner is welcome irrespective of age or ability. 

The 2020 and 2021 events were Covid-safe, adapted affairs in response to the worldwide situation and included a few changes to the course, a rolling start, no aid stations and no Junior run. 

This year’s race sees the course on the roads again, from start to finish (no grass after 8K to further tire the legs!), water stations and the Junior 3K. An attractive, chip timed route with a few hills which winds its way around local villages, encouragement from the residents as well as the volunteers and a finish in front of Normanby Hall.         

It is also an opportunity for runners to get creative and wear any combination of black and yellow clothing in keeping with the spirit of the event. Dressing as a giant bee is even better! Photographs from previous years show how some people’s imaginations know no bounds when it comes to bee themed costumes.

Finishers receive a bee themed medal and wildflower seeds which when planted, will help to save our honey-producing friends.
