Coniston area 6th October (38/2012)
Each year we are asked to marshall this annual trail race. The course covers an area around Coppermines Valley, Torver, and returns to the village via the lakeshore. Runners from all over the UK compete.
Today there were several injuries ranging from a possible arm fracture, head and leg lacerations and cramps. Members of the team helped where they could, but mainly it was ferrying the casualties to the event field. Only 1 person was taken to hospital with an arm injury.
It was a good event helped by perfect weather conditions. However the ground underfoot was very slippy which could be a little hazardous at certain points along the route.
