2nd Glossopdale-Pennine Test – Saturday 18th August

We’ll be holding the 2nd Glossopdale-Pennine Test on Saturday 18th August at 10am. The first race was held in 2013, won by Pennine. This is an informal race between the two clubs between Glossop and Hayfield. The start is the Beehive on Hague Street, Glossop, finish at the Royal Hotel in Hayfield. The only rule is that you pass to the east of Kinder Low trig. Depending on numbers, it’ll be the first 10 back from each club to count, adding up placings. Everyone taking part should take responsibility for their own navigation and safety, with adequate kit for keeping safe on the hill.


Dear Harriers

Some of you are already aware of the very sad news that our dear friend and Club stalwart Nev McGraw tragically died on Tuesday 31/7/18 following a road traffic accident. Our thoughts are with Linda and Neil and the rest of the family at this time. A Harrier from the early days, an encouraging face with a kind word for everyone- regular contributor to these pages, he will be greatly missed.

Rest in peace Nev.
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.
