It had to happen sooner or later, I am half way round a fell race – cold, wet, tired, out of breath….. then the phone rings. Trying not to stop, I check the screen and see that it is the team leader of Oldham MRT, so it needs answering. They have received a call to assist North West Ambulance Service at Lyme Park, but Kinder is the nearest team. Just as I finish sending out the callout message I get a another call – The ambulance service have managed to get to the casualty without any assistance. The team are stood down after 3mins, and I try to make back a few places in the race. Darren Wallis – Team Leader
