8 hours, cold and wet

Hats off to Steve and Gareth this afternoon, having been called out just after midday to a report of a fire at the Western Mile Marker, they carried on with a patrol.

Heading up into the clouds covering Ballard, they discovered a racing competition going on with lots of people either running or walking. Weather conditions were getting worse and several people were asking for directions so the chaps headed off to liaise with race organisers.

A Marshall was collected and taken up on to Ballard to help direct competitors, mean while the organisers were checking with their checkpoints to ensure no one was missing.

The patrol continued to drive around the area and have just returned to the station just short of 8 hours, in conditions which haven't been pleasant.
