Shelf Moor is a 9.1km, 457m ascent AS fell race from near Old Glossop to the Higher Shelf Stones trig point, back across the moor on pretty narrow rough paths before a steep grassy descent and a fast 800m along a wide track to finish. This year’s race was won by Jake Fearn (Buxton AC) in 46:19 and Caity Rice (Glossopdale Harriers) in 54:41. One Strider was present, Andy Buck, finishing 54th of 116 in 1:01:05, and 2nd V60.
