The team were put on standby to possibly assist Northumberland National Park MRT and  North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team for a collapsed racer in the final stages of the Montane Spine Race. The competitor was located in one of the most remote parts of the Pennine Way on Score Head north of King’s Seat.

The Spine Race safety team made their way from the Auchope shelter to the competitor’s location. The competitor was treated by an event Paramedic and one of the Team’s Doctors before being carried off the hill on a stretcher by Northumberland National Park MRT to their vehicles located in the forest north of Uswayford.
