From the organizer

The run takes place with the help of officers from Skipton Town Council and from 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 Rotarys own charities.

Many local businesses, organisations and schools use the event to raise money for their own charities.

We couldnt stage the event without the generosity of local businesses who provide financial support in order to ensure all proceeds from entrants go to their nominated charities 100% by ensuring all costs are pre-covered. Please take a look at those companies here and support them when you can.

Feel free to come and join us for good fun and a good cause by entering today!

Dont forget FREE Santa Suit included with entry!

    My first timefor me but did it with the gang from our running club Trawden AC, many of them had done it before.. great event, brilliant atmosphere, Skipton was buzzing, it was fantastic. Many of them called it the best of the year.

    The suit was lacking. I tore it putting it on. I do understand that it's cheep I just wasn't expecting that cheep. The support was great on the course the bands playing on the way round were amazing.The finish line was a mess trying to get through was hard it was a bit of a scrum.
  • Did the 5k in 2018

    Great run but if you want to run youll need to get to the very front of the start pens. The course has some narrow sections that are fine if youre having a jog but faster runners will want to make sure they start first. Overall it was a really fun race. Thanks to the marshalls and crew for making it so!

    A fantastic event stepped up another level this year due to moving to the High Street and having all the stalks and activities going on. Definitely recommended to anyone after some fun be it taking part or just spectating and wanting to enjoy a festive day out. Brilliant!

    Brilliant fun run! Good parking facilities. Dont expect a PB as it is narrow in places and 1750 runners including children - but do expect plenty of fun and giggles at the mass of Santas
