Last Saturday two of our medics, along with one of our 4x4s, provided support to North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team for their Allendale Challenge. From early afternoon onwards, our medics were pretty busy!
They dealt with two competitors with serious medical conditions, one of them out on Black Hill, and a number of other competitors were treated and provided with worsening advice for cuts, grazes and swelling back at the event centre.
The incidents involved 2 Team members for 9 hours.
