Hendersons End Fell Race, Provision of Standby Rescue Cover.

This evening 26x team members (plus our four team vehicles) provided Standby Rescue Cover for the third year running for the Hendersons End Fell Race which takes in a large circuit of the Rivington and Winter Hill moorlands.

This annual event organised by Lostock Athletics Club attracted on this fine summers evening 18 entrants in the junior race event and 121 entrants in the senior race event.

The sunny and very dry conditions on the event made for some quick race times but it also brought out the local biting midges to pester all involved in this event.

Given that this standby rescue cover involved a great many members of the team who had been up since 03.30hrs this morning with regards to Incident 40, thankfully we had no incidents arising on this event, so we could all retire to our beds for some well earned rest!
