One of the unique selling points of the Holme Moss Hill Climb was its almost uniform gradient. From the slight downhill stretch off the starting line, the climb, as shown in this Greenwoods sponsored centre-spread, progressed on a virtually uninterrupted slope right to the conclusion of the one and a quarter-mile timed course. The “Devil’s Elbow” 90-degree right-hand bend was already, as can be seen, no longer used by the road over the hill to Glossop, but still featured as part of the climb. Sadly, we will not be using it, as it has never been “adopted” and thus is untarmacked.
Unfortunately we can't hold the event this year but, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the hill climb on the 7th August 1920, we will meet at the Fleece in Holme Village for a socially distanced breakfast. Here you will have the opportunity to buy a souvenir program, you can then drive in your own time up the 'Moss where the program certificate will be stamped. A great commemoration of this historic hill climb.
Spectating is available from the small grandstand overlooking the start line. If you are feeling brave, there is a footpath up the hill to the carpark at the top. This carpark will be used as a turning and assembly area for competitors who have finished their run and are waiting to descend for their next one.
The event is competitive, and our dedicated team of experienced Hill Climb marshals are there to ensure safety – please follow their instructions.
