The weather was bright and blustery for The Great Skipton Santa Run today. The market town of Skipton is located about twenty miles West of Bradford and holds this Santa run to raise money for charity. The runners, several hundred of them, start their run from a nearby park and then head for the town centre. The picture shows some of the runners passing through the churchyard at the top of the High Street. This years charities are the Sue Ryder Hospice, the Martin House Hospice for Children and the Upper Wharfedale Fell Rescue Association.
