What’s it all about


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

Starting at 1100 on Sunday 27th November 2022, on Skipton High Street, this is a precursor to the Christmas Lights switch on later on in the day

The event takes place with the support of Skipton Town Council

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

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.

The Entry Fee is £20 per Adult (16 and over), £10 for a Child (6 to 15). The Entry Fee includes a Santa suit/t-shirt to run in and a commemorative medal to all finishers.

Local businesses are encourage to enter a team or are invited to sponsor the event.  Click here to download a Sponsorship Form

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 of Skipton Craven
