Incident 89/2016 – Nov. 3rd Thu. 17.52 – Pen y ghent – Ribblehead area, North Yorkshire – Mountain Rescue.

A Three Peaks fell-runner (m, 63) was reported overdue, between Horton in Ribblesdale and Ribblehead, via Pen y ghent. Starting at Ribblehead, he had run over Whernside and Ingleborough, then left Horton at 12.38, for Pen y ghent, anticipating completing his run in about another two hours. Descending from Pen y ghent, he had sustained a slight knee injury and decided to drop down to Horton, rather than continuing to Ribblehead. Travelling light, he had no means of contacting the people waiting for him at Ribblehead. After five hours, they reported him missing. Roads and main tracks having been driven, CRO members and a SARDA dog were being deployed on foot, when he was found, unharmed, in Horton.
