Hendersons End Fell Race, Provision of Standby Rescue Cover.

This evening 26x team members (plus our five team vehicles and our Control trailer) provided Standby Rescue Cover for the fourth 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 excellent sunny summers evening 8x entrants in the Junior Race event and 75x entrants in the Senior Race event.

The sunny and very dry conditions on the event made for some quick race times and even the usually abundant local biting midges stayed away, so nothing spoilt this evenings event.

Thankfully we had no incidents arising on this event, and with only one retirement from the race, all entrants completed the race.
