Standby Rescue Cover – Two Lads Fell Race

Organised by Horwich RMI Harriers and Athletics Club, and forming part of the Horwich Carnival Race series, this Fell Race takes in a course that commences in Horwich, ascends through Wilderswood and Wilders Moor and onto Adam Hill and White Brow, thence to Two Lads summit and descends back into Horwich.

The Senior Race which commenced at 19:30, attracted 227 runners, all bar one (who retired part way round) completed the course.

As in previous years the team was on standby to provide rescue cover and personnel to back up the marshalls at the moorland checkpoints.

Twenty six team members attended the event, working out of a central MRT control point set up on Georges Lane.
