***January 2021 – Club Session Update***

Whilst the club training sessions made a very brief reappearance, as we’re currently in lockdown there are no sessions in accordance with guidance.  We’ll let you all know when we can restart.

When sessions do start again they’ll be in accordance with the documents located at the link below. Any members who want to return to Coached Sessions need to familiarise themselves with these documents and will be referred to them during the registration process for each session when they re-start. Keep your eye on Facebook!




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.
