We have identified a series of local parkruns that provide an opportunity for members to meet on a Saturday morning to run 5k together and socialise afterwards if they wish to. The criteria for selecting the events includes:-

Skipton Aireville Park   4 154 7 05-Feb

Criteria for taking part in the parkrun 'Grand Prix' includes:-

One of the main points for organising the series is to provide an opportunity for members to run as a Skipton AC community. It is a really enjoyable feature of club membership. We have tried to avoid running event clashes e.g. WYWL. However, if you can't join the Club at the parkrun on the date specified, you can 'catch up' as long as you complete the event either a week before or after the scheduled date.

We will report progress after each event. As we know, parkrun is a run not a race, however the 'winner' will be the member with the highest age graded score having completed a minimum of 6 out of the 7 designated parkruns. Members will be able to sign up for a Grand Prix event via the 'Team up' app in the week leading up to the parkrun if they would like to but this is not essential.

We hope you will be able to join us!
