OK, so when we heard about this race, and we realised where in the world we are going, we were actually speechless.

2019 sees the first collaboration between the incredible teams at Ultra X, Tribe Run for Love and the globally recognised awesome team at Exile Medics. In this unique, unbelievable race, we will travel to the middle of the Atlantic Ocean to the Azores for the Run for Love round island ultra: a 6 day 250km race round nearly the entire island of São Miguel. You’ll move base cap each day around the Atlantic coast of the subtropical island, with checkpoints spread through the tropical landscape. The Exile Medics team will be responsible for delivering the world class expedition care that we specialise in providing to participants from all over the world, each working to complete this challenge of a lifetime. You’ll camp in the wilds, eat local fare, and top it all off with a legendary Big Party under the stars.

Visit the race website here, and see below for more details about this astounding event, which is sure to be hugely popular. Apply to join the Exile Team and discover why you studied medicine.

The Azores lie 1,000 miles into the deep Atlantic Ocean, west of Europe. Sounds like the right place to find an Exile Medic Team doing their thing. Lets saddle up and head into the waves!

Cost: The Tribe Run for Love Azores 2019 costs £175 (including the necessary yet hated VAT at 20%) for the administrative fee. You will need to buy your flight, but will receive around £100 towards it from the race organisers after the event. You will need to submit a claim for this via the website so that we can keep the paper trail together. There will be no accommodation costs, but you will need to bring your tent and camping essentials. You’ll bring your own food too.

Dates: You should aim to arrive at the airport in Ponta Delgada on the 23rd November 2019, and will be accommodated in there in a hotel at no cost prior to the event transferring us into the field on the morning of the 24th November 2019. The race will begin on the morning of the 25th November 2019 in Ponta Delgada à Calhetas. You will be able to fly home from the 1st December 2019. We strongly recommend that you organise a late flight, or a flight the following day to avoid the travel problems associated with remote places.

Food: You will need to bring all of your food for the week, including breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks for each day. Cooking facilities will be boiling water at the end of each day.

Accommodation: Accommodation in Ponta Delgada will be arranged by the event in hotels, however during the week you are expected to sleep in your own tents with your own sleeping bags. No indoor accommodation is available where you’re going.

Communication: Mobile phone coverage is good in places, poor in others. We expect satellite phones to be in use where mobile coverage is poor.
