Smithhills Serpent Trail Race, Provision of Standby Rescue Cover.

Today 22 team members, plus our four Landrover Ambulance team vehicles provided Standby Rescue Cover for the Smithhills Serpent Trail Race which takes in the trails above Horrocks Fold on the fringes of Smithhills Moor.

Organised by the Burnden Park Running Club, 131 runners took part in the 5 mile route, with each competitor completing 3 circuits of the trail. All competitors received a Curly Wurly as a ’prize’ for taking part in the event (with a number of our Mountain Rescue personnel also benefiting from this ’prize’!)
