***April 2021 – Club Session Update***
In line with the easing of national lockdown restrictions from Monday 29 March 2021, we are pleased to announce that the club can return to structured training sessions. The coached sessions will be restricted to a maximum of 16 participants (including the coach) and will restart from Tuesday 30th March 2021. All coached sessions will take place on the Simmondley track, which has been risk assessed by the Club’s Covid Officer, Andy Brack. Members will need to use Eventbrite to book onto the coached sessions.
All formal club sessions require a risk assessment and need to adhere to various conditions so whilst the easing of restrictions on 29th March 2021 will allow for people to meet in groups of 6 for social runs etc, these are not formal club activities.
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. We anticipate this to be case until 21st June 2021, which is the next milestone as things currently stand in terms of returning to having larger groups. However, the committee will keep this under review.
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.
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.
Alternatively just come along to one of the club runs at 7pm every Thursday evening. See the Club Runs page for details of our sessions.
For club members, we use our club Facebook page to pass on information about club runs, races (especially transport), arrangements for away weekends and general running related activities. Follow the link below to see how to sign up
