What’s it all about

The Great Skipton Santa Fun Run is a 5km charity run and walk organised by The Rotary Club of Skipton Craven. 

Taking place at 1100 on Sunday 28th November 2021, the run will start and finish on Skipton High Street, and is a precursor to the Christmas Lights switch on later on in the day.

The run takes place with the support of Skipton Town Council, Craven District Council and Skipton Business Improvement District.

In addition to many of the runners’ own charities, the main beneficiaries this year will be Sue Ryder Manorlands, local Skipton charities and Rotary charities.

The Race follows a 5km course around Skipton, through Aireville Park and Skipton Woods. A shorter (3km) wheelchair friendly route, again starting and finishing on the High Street, takes in a circuit of Aireville Park.  Click here for further information about the Route

Registration will cost £18 for adults and £10 for children under the age of 16.  The Adult rate will rise to £20 on the day.  This is to cover the cost of your Santa suit and a commemorative medal to recognize your completion of the Run.  The remainder will go towards our nominated charities.

Individuals aged 6 yrs and over and of any ability can take part. We encourage families and members of community groups to enter teams to run as a group and raise sponsorship money.

Many local Charities, organisations and schools use the event to raise money for their own charities and support the event through sponsorship.   

The first 10 charities, schools, organisations or amateur clubs relating to children, that enter a team of 25 or more, will receive a £250 incentive for their organisation. All you have to do is make sure that all entries have the same team name and once entered, email the names through to us at admin@skiptonsantafunrun.co.uk

Acceptance of any organisation’s application will be at the discretion of the Rotary Club.
