Whilst assisting the Kinder Trog Fell Race with marshals and casualty care, we were contacted by East Midlands Ambulance Service. A walker near our checkpoint at Edale Cross had suffered a lower leg injury, believed to be an ankle fracture. A hill party were despatched to the location provided but no-one was found. The air ambulance was also tasked to attend. A new location was then provided putting the casualty well along the southern edge path. The casualty was taken to hospital by the air ambulance and we were stood down, to continue with assisting the fell race.
