Pennsylvania MedWAR 2019

MedWAR is short for Medical Wilderness Adventure Race. It is a unique event that combines wilderness medical challenges with the growing sport of adventure racing. The race was also developed as a tool for teaching and testing the knowledge, skills, and techniques of wilderness medicine, and for promoting teamwork and collegiality among competitors. MedWAR is sanctioned by North American Educational Adventure Racing (NAEAR).

The Pennsylvania MedWAR is back this year with a twist. In addition to the wilderness skills you know and love, this year will include some never-before-seen DISASTER SCENARIOS. A great race for beginners and veterans alike not to mention a post-race party and race swag! Registration fills up quick, so don't delay. And don't forget- nature can draw blood faster than you can...

Please visit www.medwar.org to read through the official MedWAR Challenge Curriculum and FAQ’s for very important details before registering for any of the races.
