At the top of the zig-zags on the Pony Path, at a junction known as "the 560", a runner suffered a bad leg sprain, quite close to the position of a Team vehicle monitoring the race. The man found walking difficult but was not in great pain when resting.
In the meantime, a runner suffered more serious lower leg injuries near the Pen y Gader summit. The woman was attended to by Team volunteers and race marshalls, and given her injuries a helicopter evacuation was requested. With the local Coast Guard helicopter already deployed elsewhere, R187 was dispatched from St. Athan in South Wales. The woman was airlifted to Bronglais Hospital for further assessment and treatment.
Once the summit incident was resolved, volunteers made their way downhill, and the runner at 560 was given a lift down the mountain in a Team vehicle.
