On Saturday 13th January 2024 Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team member Paul Taylor will be joining fellow Mountain Rescue England and Wales (MREW) colleagues to attempt the The Montane Spine Mountain Rescue Team Challenge.   This is a 108 mile race along the Pennine Way between Edale in Derbyshire and Hawes in North Yorkshire with a time limit of 60 hours in a category specifically for members of Mountain Rescue teams.   To give some idea as to what they can expect throughout the route the official website provides this description;    "This challenging and technical section of the Pennine Way is a physically and psychologically demanding route that demands concentration, good physical fitness, resolve and respect."    “The rugged and very technical nature of this race is mentally taxing, as you have to constantly be aware of foot placement in icy conditions, weather systems, navigation, available daylight and self-management.   “In all of the previous editions of the race competitors have faced at least one of (if not multiples of ) extreme weather, storm force winds, snow, extreme ice, bogs, fog, hail, mud and almost anything else you can think of!”   They will be setting off from Edale at 8.30 a.m. on Saturday and you can track all of the competitors progress via the individual trackers that they’ll be carrying.
