Santa Fun Run couple tie the knot during race

Fun-running couple Wendy Lawson and Alex Griffin took just enough time out of this year's Skipton Santa Fun Run .... to nip into the register office and tie the knot!

The couple, from Ingleton, chose November 25th because it's Alex's birthday - which this year fell on the day of the run - standing out from the crowd of 1800 other Santas in green velvet.

Wendy said: "I have taken part in several Skipton Santa Fun Runs in the past. This one is extra special, as I start the run/walk as Wendy Lawson and finish it as Wendy Griffin - after a slight detour from the canal path to Skipton Registry Office."

The marriage was later followed by a blessing at the Holy Trinity Church.
