Shelf Moor Fell Race, Old Glossop
Head for Glossop, in the centre take the road north, then turn right and down the hill into Old Glossop. Registration on Shepley Street. Find out more. Leave plenty of time to get there because its hard to find and Glossop has the occasional fair which closes the town centre and causes absolute chaos (e.g. on 5th September 2004).
Hard climb but generally good under foot with fast descent. Beautiful views from summit over 2000' above sea level. River at end to wash legs and cool brain.
