Elves & Rudolphs get ready for this run up to Christmas
A tale of two runs whilst supporting a local charity
Not one but two ways for runners to get in the mood for Christmas and in the company of like-minded others. On Sunday 19 December, Normanby Hall is hosting ELF Yourself then Rudolph’s Revenge in the afternoon at this festive event in support of Lindsey Lodge Hospice.
Another cracker from Curly’s Athletes along with the Doncaster Santa Dash and The Great Sprout Scuttle: all of which mean we are now on countdown to the Big Day. They are something to look forward to especially after ‘Covid Christmas’ last year with its distinct lack of festive cheer and an enjoyable way to end 2021 – Omicron or not – before training begins in earnest for 2022.
Curly’s Athletes in conjunction with Lindsey Lodge Hospice have designed these events for people of all ages and abilities where fancy dress is definitely encouraged and in the attractive setting of Normanby Hall Country Park. A favourite with the organisers, it will be a hive of activity on the day with snow machines, choirs, hot food and mulled wine for all.
ELF Yourself is a family friendly event, 3K in distance which people can run, jog or walk whilst visiting Elf stations including picking up a present for Santa. Once delivered to Old Saint Nick they are rewarded with a medal and take pride in becoming a fully fledged Elf! This event starts at 1pm.
At 5pm is Rudolph’s Revenge, a 10K night time trail run consisting of two, 5K loops through the woods and past the deer park. The course will be lit in places but head torches are required and there will be Christmas decorations along the route and music, helping to create a lively and fun atmosphere.
Finishers will be presented with a Rudolph’s Revenge medal, water, mulled wine and a snack.
More information about the two events and entry details can be found at the Curly’s Athletes website.
