Home of running in Glossop and the Dark Peak

***Committee update re Covid 19***

Based on government advice that came out earlier today (16th March) the committee has taken the decision to cancel all training sessions and club runs with immediate effect. We will continue to keep you updated about our position based on government/Public Health England/EA guidance. We know that many of you will want to continue to run, and we would encourage that if you are healthy and not isolating, that you arrange any runs as you wish bearing in mind the need to minimise non-essential gatherings. Please do this privately and NOT on the GDH page. In the meantime, we hope everyone stays safe and well!



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.
