What it’s all About

Organised by The Rotary Club of Skipton Craven, the Great Skipton Santa Fun Run 2020 is an alternative/virtual fun challenge for all, in support of the Rotary Club of Skipton Craven charities and, if you wish, a charity of your choice.

For this year’s event, you can choose your own route to run, jog, walk, swim, cycle, roller skate or even ice skate 5 kilometres, or to do so on your wheelchair or mobility scooter, or virtually using a treadmill or exercise bike.  There will be a prize for what is judged to be the most innovative method of taking on this 5km challenge, which must be completed over the weekend of Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th December.  To be eligible for the prize, please send us a photograph to admin@skiptonsantafunrun.co.uk or post on our Great Skipton Santa Fun Run Facebook page.

The aim of this event is to raise much-needed funds primarily for Manorlands but also for local charities.  For this year only, we will not be Aproviding Santa Suits or medals, so that we can make the whole of the registration fee a donation to charity and therefore be eligible for Gift Aid.

The entry donation will be £15 for all those over 16 years; free for children under 16.

Participants are encouraged to wear a seasonal outfit while undertaking the challenge.  There will be a prize for what is judged to be the best seasonal outfit.  To be eligible for the prize, please send us a photograph to admin@skiptonsantafunrun.co.uk or post on our Great Skipton Santa Fun Run Facebook page.

There is also the opportunity on the entry form to give a further donation to Manorlands or other local charities.

All participants will be responsible for their own safety and for following COVID-19 rules regarding group gatherings and social distancing.   For further safety guidance, go to Health & Safety

So, come on and register and donate to make this alternative/virtual Santa Fun Run 2020 something special.
