The CRO Challenge team are all volunteers from the CRO – the CRO is the Cave and Mountain Rescue Team covering the 3 Peaks and Malham area of the Yorkshire Dales, and provides Cave Rescue over parts of Yorkshire, Lancashire and Cumbria.
Many CRO members and friends of CRO help organise the event on the day, while ensuring that the team can still undertake any emergency calls which come through.
