Home of running in Glossop and the Dark Peak

***Club Session Update***

The club will continue with the structured training sessions.  The coached sessions will remain restricted to a maximum of 16 participants (including the coach).  All coached sessions will take place on the Simmondley track, which has been risk assessed by the Club’s Covid Officer, Andy Brack.  


All formal club sessions require a risk assessment and need to adhere to various conditions so whilst the easing of restrictions on 17 May 2021 will allow for people to meet in larger groups for social runs etc, the committee recommend limiting group size to 16, in order to maintain the goodwill of the local community.


Club members managed magnificently last year with this informal (but safe) approach to organising runs/activities and we are sure it will work well again.


Please read the Club’s Covid19 documentation, which can be found at: COVID-19 DOCUMENTATION



Glossopdale Harriers is a well established and friendly running club based in the old market town of Glossop in the High Peak District of North West Derbyshire.


We are active in road, fell, trail and cross country running, and our members organise regular local runs on the roads and fells that cater for all abilities.

Glossop is surrounded by hills and many of the members like to get up onto the edges and high moors of Bleaklow, Shelf Moor, Kinder, Glossop Low and the Nab to name a few.

Club Races

We organise two local fell races: the Herod Farm race and the John Hewitt Memorial Shelf Moor race. The Shelf Moor race was a counter in the Fell Running English Championships in 2010 and was re-named in 2018 to commemorate John Hewitt, long standing member and Chair of Glossopdale Harriers. This is our way of putting back something into the sport in return for all the pleasure we get out of it.
