Ali H - Glossopdale Harriers
Just come along to a club run one night, no need to pay up beforehand, we're very much a come-and-try (and see how friendly we are!) club. just drop me a PM so I can come and say hello (tho I only run Tuesdays)! if you let me know when yr coming I'll pass on a message to the club so they know to look out for you (we either loiter inside the leisure centre reception or outside - look for the runners in fell shoes!).
we have a couple of members get the train from Manchester, one who cycles to piccadilly to get the Glossop train There's always someone's car to leave a bag in so no prob about yr bag.
and yes, I'm up for weekend runs - I'll DM you my email address so we can sort something out
I can recommend the area around the Roaches for running too. Parking up at Dane Bridge or Gradbach offer loads of options.
If you are training it out the the peak district I reckon getting off at Buxton would also be a good option.
I'm one of the Glossopdalers who gets the train from Manchester (2 stops on from Picc), you can use the gym changing rooms and showers, they have lockers too, just make sure you have a pound coin (you get it back though).
I'll be there on Thursday with my collie most likely, think there will be a good turn out with the nice weather, there was tonight anyway.

may the course be with you!
Thanks everyone, some good tips! I'll be coming out this evening, can't wait. Even more excited by the prospect of some collies - I adore them! Looking forward to meeting people.
