Contact us and express interest if you think we should hold this event again!

Hosted by the Timothy Group Medical Team. This premier event is by invitation only.

This team race will be an assessment and training challenge for Timothy Group alumni. Participants must have prior medical training or else complete the preceding MEHRST/TCCC training. The race will involve entry from the water of an island location, navigation to injured personnel, preforming of interventions for trauma, and packaging and transport to an evacuation point. Teams will operate covertly so as to avoid a simulated opposition force. Upon MEDEVAC completion, teams will exit by water and swim to the finish point.

Location: "Bear Island" at Lake Hartwell, GA. Map and island information will not be disclosed until the day of the race.
The meeting location is: 6165 Lavonia Hwy, Lavonia, GA 30553. A guide car will direct you from there to the starting line.

Be at the starting line no less than 20 minutes before the start time to communicate with your spotter and review the rules.
