Home of running in Glossop and the Dark Peak




Dear Harriers

Our dear friend John Hewitt passed away recently. As you may know, he was diagnosed with a brain tumour last May. Although this could not be treated, John was able to enjoy a wonderful summer with friends and family, and visiting some favourite places. He leaves his father, Desmond and many, many close friends for whom John H was nothing less than a star.

Rest in peace John.
With love from us all.


The Thursday night social run volunteer/calendar continues apace – sign up here. Please stick your name down for a Thursday night between now and March. It’s great to have different people leading.

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 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 stage two local fell races: the Herod Farm race and the Shelf Moor race. The Shelf Moor race was a counter in the Fell Running English Championships in 2010. This is our way of putting back something into the sport in return for all the pleasure we get out of it.
