Welcome to the Great Skipton Fun Run website

For the last 10 years, on one Sunday morning in November, the streets of Skipton have turned red with around 2000 men, women and children running a 5 km course in the Great Skipton Santa Fun Run, in support of the Rotary Club of Skipton Craven charities or of charities of their choice.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Great Skipton Santa Fun Run 2020, which was due to take place on Sunday 29th November, has been cancelled.

However, due to the financial difficulties experienced by many charities as a result of the restrictions, we are planning an ‘alternative’ 5km Fun Run in December 2020. Entrants will be able to choose their own 5km route and method (running, walking, crawling, treadmill etc)  to help raise much needed funds for local charities again this year.

We are currently still in the planning stages but will provide further details before the Registration date of 1st October 2020.
