Provision of Standby Rescue Cover, Aggies Staircase Fell Race.

This evening 27x Team Call Out list members, and former team member Paul Brain, in our four Land Rover Mountain Rescue Ambulances and our minibus, provided standby rescue cover for the annual Aggies Staircase Fell Race, organised by Darwen Dashers Running Club, which takes in a route over Darwen Moor, including the very steep path section above Stepback Brook, known as Aggies Staircase.

Just like last years event, excellent very dry ground conditions, sunny skies and a wind just breezy enough to keep the midges at bay gave an excellent race for the 126 x competitors taking part, in an event which passed both quickly and thankfully without incident.
