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.

The run normally raises over £25K for Manorlands alone, along with £20K for many other local charities.

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 running an alternative/virtual 5km Fun Run, which will take place over the weekend of Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th December.

Entrants will be able to choose their own 5km route and method (running, walking, crawling, cycling, treadmill, exercise bike etc) to help raise much needed funds for local charities.
