The Great Skipton Santa Fun Run and Walk is a 5km charity race and walk organised by The Rotary Club of Skipton Craven, and each year the event gets bigger and bigger. For 2018, the run will move to Skipton High Street, and it will now be linked in with the Christmas Light switch on later on in the day. The run takes place with the help of Skipton Town Council and Craven District Council and in addition to many of the runners’ own charities, the main beneficiaries this year will be Sue Ryder Manorlands, Yorkshire Cancer Research and Rotary Charities. Many local businesses, organisations and schools use the event to raise money for their own charities and support the event through sponsorship. Feel free to come and join us for good fun and a good cause by entering today! Individuals of any age ( 6yrs and over) and ability can take part. We encourage families and members of community groups to enter teams to run as a group and raise sponsor money. Sponsorship forms can be downloaded from the Rotary Club web site.
