A 29 year old male competitor in the Scafell Pike marathon tripped on the path down from Styhead Tarn not far from the “1000 foot boulder”. The runner was reported to have a bad cut to his head caused by the fall. The Team was alerted and dispatched two vehicles to Seathwaite. In the meantime a number of passing walkers and fellow competitors helped with first aid and kept the casualty warm. The casualty was located and assessed but was able to walk himself down to Seathwaite with the Team. He was taken to hospital by his father for further checks and probably a number of stitches.
