Hit The Downs MTB 2019
12th May 2019, Shoreham by Sea, West Sussex
Applications open 10th March- 10th April 2019
When will I find out if I've been selected? By 15th May 2019
This is exciting. Really exciting! This is our first event with the might PIE events organisation. This group deliver expeditions and events all over Europe, and in their wisdom, they’ve chosen the Exile Medics to look after everyone involved in these adventures.
In this first outing, we’ve taken on their first event of 2019 in Shoreham on the Sussex Downs. Ask anyone who’s been an Exile on our UK events, and you’ll know that just because its in the UK, its isn’t any less wilderness, and we expect to be busy from dawn till dusk during the day. You’ll arrive on the 11th May and camp out with the Exile team, receiving your kit, briefings and strategy, before heading out into the field to do your thing. As ever, you’ll have senior medical support on site to lend a hand if you need it, and all the medical kit will be supplied by Exile Medics. We’ll encourage you to bring your bikes or off road vehicles to the event, but it isn’t necessary.
This is one of those events that is great for you to dip your toe in the expedition and wilderness waters, see if its your thing and make a name for yourself for other Exile Medics expeditions. We really want to encourage early career doctors, paramedics, nurses and physiotherapists to apply for this one, and it’ll be a strong addition to your applications for other Exile Medics expeditions.
