Local Challenges / Races

If you don’t have a race coming up or fancy trying out some training routes then take a look at our local challenges. Covering long lost (almost) fell races and short sharp road challenges that finish at the pub, there is something for everyone. Do them on a social, give them an effort, some may even be close to breaking the known records.

All route information sheets were researched and prepared by Ian Crutchley with support from club members past and present where noted.

CLICK HERE FOR FELL CHALLENGES / RACES – Don’t forget about safety in the hills and always take appropriate equipment. Check out our fell running guide HERE.

CLICK HERE FOR ROAD CHALLENGES / RACES – Important note, these route are on open roads around Glossop and completed at everyone’s own risk. Extreme care should be taken at all times, especially when crossing any roads. Remember: a PB isn’t more important than your safety.  

CLICK HERE FOR NAVIGATION COURSES / CHALLENGES – These routes are designed to take you off the beaten track to often more remote/less-travelled locations. Please make sure you have the appropriate skill level to take these on, take appropriate kit for the conditions, attempt them in pairs and tell someone what you’re doing and how long you expect it to take. It’s always useful to have a GPS back-up device if you do get in trouble with navigation.

CLICK HERE FOR INFORMATION ON HISTORIC RACES – unfortunately NOT to be attempted under any circumstances. These races were held with some closed roads and used the B6105 (Woodhead Road) where there are no footpaths and fast moving traffic. These race routes are here for historic information only.
