Fifteen team members provided rescue cover for the annual Three Peaks Race, clocking up over 120 volunteer hours, over the day . They based themselves mainly in Horton in Ribblesdale, but with one on Pen y ghent summit and two each on Whernside and Ingleborough summits, co-operating with race marshals and RAYNET radio operators to ensure the safety of the runners. One (anonymous) runner was reported to be injured, but continuing, between Pen y ghent and High Birkwith. A sweep failed to find him and he progressed without being identified. A runner who was struggling on the way up Ingleborough was accompanied back down to Chapel le dale by a marshal and ‘shadowed’ by a CRO member. All runners were accounted for.
Several walkers in the area were not so fortunate . . .
