Bee quick as there are limited spaces in Normanby Hall 10K
Curlys Athletes team back in action in June
It is going to be a busy 2021 for Curly’s Athletes and their road map of races that includes Normanby Hall 10K, scheduled for Sunday 27 June. The countryside course, historic location, friendly atmosphere and bee theme always attracts a good turnout but don’t leave it too long to enter.
The 2020 race was moved from June to October due to the pandemic and entries limited to 500. This Covid-secure event was a success as feedback showed and organisers are looking forward to another fun and safe day out for 1,000 runners this June. Fingers crossed for blue skies and sunshine too!
This race is all about the bees: the black and yellow costumes worn by many of the runners, a trophy for the ‘best dressed bee’, medal and a packet of bee-friendly sunflower seeds for every finisher. Most importantly, it is supporting the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, one of several wildlife charities Curly’s Athletes are passionate about.
The 300-acre Normanby Hall Country Park is the venue for the 6th outing of this race that caters for all abilities and is high on a list of all-time favourite 10Ks. Starting in view of the hall, the route is held on a mixture of open and closed roads and takes runners on a tour of local villages, surrounded by the picturesque North Lincolnshire countryside.
There is a junior 3K this year at 8.30am followed by the 10K at 9.30am. A rolling start will be in operation. More information about how the race is structured in these Covid times can be downloaded from the Curly’s Athletes website.
Note: there is a virtual option for anyone unable to travel or not yet ready for live races.
Make a beeline for the Normanby Hall 10K.
