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 annual Fell Race takes in a course that commences in Horwich, ascends through Wilderswood and Wilders Moor onto Adam Hill and White Brow, thence to Two Lads summit and descends back into Horwich.

The race, commencing at 19:30 attracted 76 runners, all of whom completed the event without incident. As in previous years the Team was on hand to provide back up to the marshal’s at the various marshal’s points and to provide standby rescue cover in case of any incident.

Twenty eight team members attended tonights standby rescue cover event, together with our four Land Rover Mountain Rescue Ambulance vehicles, with our involvement co-ordinated from our Control Trailer.

The event on this very warm evening combined with excellent dry running conditions, gave some very fast running times for the runners taking part.

On Sunday 20th June, the team will be on hand for the all day long Horwich Carnival Races, which is the culminating event of the Race Series.
