Medical Wilderness Adventure Race (MedWAR) Utah
Racers (in teams of 3 of any composition) test their endurance and the thickness of their hides through Nordic skiing, snowshoeing and orienteering while pitting their minds against ours in wilderness emergency scenarios. Each team receives a map and must navigate to a series of checkpoints. At the checkpoints, tasks must be completed that test physical ability and/or wilderness medical knowledge and skills. The team must successfully complete the task and demonstrate all procedures before moving forward in the race. Past races have involved treating everything from climbing or skiing accidents to stove burns and altitude sickness. Expected race finish times are 4-7 hours. This is an unassisted race - no support crew. There are no age, gender, or training level catagories. Medical training is NOT required to compete, however you will have a significant advantage if you and your teammates have some level of wilderness medical knowledge.
