The Team were called initially to find a 61-year-old female who had become lost and disorientated in the cloud near the summit of Crossfell. Two groups were sent, one approaching from Kirkland, the other from Garrigill. The walker was found in a shelter just below the summit and was walked to Greg's Hut where they were driven by Land Rover to Garrigill.

As the Team were returning to base they were diverted to assist a 53-year-old male ultra runner who had a suspected broken ankle on Bampton Common above Haweswater. Vehicles were able to get quite close along the lakeside path before the Team made it the rest of the way on foot. The casualty was in good spirits despite the rain and had their ankle splinted before being stretchered back to the Land Rovers to be driven to Burnbanks and a waiting NWAS ambulance. The Team were assisted by Event Safety Group from the event the runner was competing in, along with members of Kirkby Stephen Mountain Rescue Team, a big thank you to you all!
