Medical Wilderness Adventure Race (MedWAR)
Teams of four run, mountain bike, and rock climb through incredible vistas and beautiful desert scenery while encountering challenging medical simulations and answering questions along the way. Checkpoints will contain 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 6-7 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 categories. 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.
