Provision of Standby Rescue Cover, Aggies Staircase Fell Race.

This evening 14x team members in our four Land Rover Mountain Rescue vehicles provided standby rescue cover for the annual Aggies Staircase Fell Race, organised by Darwen Dashers Running Club, and taking in a route over Darwen Moor, including the very steep path known as Aggies Staircase.

Excellent dry ground conditions, sunny skies and a wind just breezy enough to keep the midges at bay gave for an excellent race for the 166x competitors, in an event which passed without incident.
