PNWM is proud to introduce the first MedWAR Challenge in Washington State! Join us May 11th, 2019 at Capitol State Park.

Pacific Northwest Wilderness Medicine (PNWM) has partnered with North American Educational Adventure Racing (NAEAR) to bring the Medical Wilderness Adventure Race back to our region. The inaugural MedWAR was developed and hosted by emergency physicians and medical students from the Medical College in Georgia in the fall of 2000. Since then, MedWAR Challenge has grown to include races all over the country every year. We are honored to host this unique educational event into our corner of the continent in 2019.
