***REGISTRATION IS OPEN!*** & ends March 15th!
MedWAR, also known as the Medical Wilderness Adventure Race, is a competition that combines wilderness medicine and racing. Teams of four compete to see who can finish first. The teams will have put their minds together and
find solutions to the many medical scenarios constructed throughout a course, which involves running, hiking, biking, and canoeing. MedWAR is an annual event created and coordinated by Medical College of Georgia students and emergency medicine physicians. Now in its fourteenth (or fifteenth? something like that) year, it has expanded to a series of races in the US and Canada.
I was one of the administrative directors for the race last year, in charge of advertising & helping plan the medical scenarios (which are always Awesome by the way), & I’m helping out again this year! Pass this along to anyone who is interested or let me know if you are!!
Special note to the anon docs/med students I follow: You guys are amazing and I respect your anonymity. Feel free to sign up / e-mail me and let me know you are interested. No need to let me know how you heard about it or let me know your alias, I just want you to enjoy the race!!
Contact me @ firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested!! OR just go ahead and sign up ;)
A note: Anyone can participate :) So bring it on.

As I said last year when signal-boosting this event — I would totally do this if I had the time…
OR MAYBE I’LL ACTUALLY BE THERE THIS YEAR, UNDER MY REAL IDENTITY, AND NOBODY WILL EVER KNOW.
(Kind of a reverse April Fool’s prank?)
