Southeast Medical Wilderness Adventure Race (MedWAR)

Racers will mountain bike, canoe, and orienteer while navigating to checkpoints containing wilderness medicine scenarios and questions. Some basic ropes elements may or may not be included. Teams of four will race on a course featuring questions and hand-on scenarios, designed to test your academic and practical knowledge of wilderness medicine. Teams will navigate by map and compass to checkpoints where they will encounter physical challenges or wilderness medicine scenarios. 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 diving accidents to stove burns and altitude sickness. Expected race finish times are 6-10 hours. This is an unassisted race - no support crew. Teams of any four (4) persons - no less, no more. 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.
