Mountain rescue team counts cash after hill run

Woodhead Mountain Rescue has confirmed the amount of sponsorship money raised after last weekend's inaugural Trigger event - which sees competitors putting on their running shoes and scaling the Peak District's three highest summits.

The team has picked up £2,502 for the event, which featured 169 runners, Grough Reports.

A spokesperson for the Woodhead team, which was out in force to help steward the event, said: "The day was a stunning day to be out in the hills. The usual knee-deep bogs of Bleaklow and Kinder were frozen hard allowing for some very fast running."

While the route takes in the summits of Black Hill, Bleaklow and Kinder Scout, its name focuses on the trig points to be found along the way.

Walkers on the moors may note that Bleaklow's 2,077ft summit has a large cairn rather than a trig, whereas nearby Higher Shelf Stones (2,021 ft) does have a trig.

The Kinder plateau has two trigs, but neither mark the summit, which is a hard to find and consists of a small cairn in the middle of the high plateau.
