Incident 25/2016 – April 30th Sat. 13.15 – Whernside, North Yorkshire – Mountain Rescue

Two competitors in the annual Three Peaks Race were in difficulty in bitterly cold conditions, at the summit of Whernside, one with apparent hypothermia, the other with a loss of sensation in the left leg. The marshall called for CRO assistance and a team met the cold runner, who was already descending. The other runner made his own way down to Chapel-le-dale and both then retired from the race.
