What do athletes, participants and event directors say about Exile Medics?
“Having Exile Medics look after us during the Ice Ultra in Sweden made a big difference to my race. I felt a lot safer pushing myself to my limits in the harsh and unforgiving environment of the Arctic Circle with such a brilliant team of medics there in support. Lovely people too.”
Team GB Ultra Runner
“I love adventure and risk. My passion is running tough 200km + races in extreme environments and pushing myself to the limit. When I know that Exile Medics are supporting the race, I know that I am in safe hands. If things go wrong there are experts on hand to manage the situation in a place with limited back-up or resources. Not only that, Exile Medics are always friendly, helpful and supportive which enhances the whole race experience.”

I have worked with the Exiles for 2 years now across 3 Continents and trust them implicitly with my own life, but more importantly that of all the runners at our races. No matter the challenge, or the conditions the Impact Marathon team has complete confidence that the Exiles will handle it.
Furthermore, they tackle the challenges with huge positivity as well as professionalism. They bring a lot of fun to our races and adapt to the atmosphere we look to create amongst our participants!
We look forward to a lot more memorable experiences in the future!
Nick Kershaw, Director, Impact Marathon Series
I've worked alongside Exile medics on the spine races for the past 4 years. The team is always professional, committed and fun. The legal of deduction to the racers is second to non and feedback from the athletes and support crew is always positive.
I've personally engaged Exile Medics during a wheel chair attempt by Shaun Gash of Kilimanjaro during the summer of 2016. Helping with the medical needs of 27 clients. During the summit attempt an incident occurred which the medic responded to in a professional manner, which resulted in a positive outcome.
I have no reservation on recommending Exile medics and I will be engaging in future expeditions.
Darren Hunt, Director, Mountains in Mind
Literally saved my life in Peru. I managed to cook myself from the inside, if the Exiles weren't there and so on the ball it would have been a very different outcome.

Exile Medics is not the only organisation to offer wilderness and expedition medicine services but it feels unique in the otherwise crowded marketplace.
A relaxed and friendly ethos cannot hide the solid foundation of clinical governance and logistical support behind every the team that flies out to events around the world.
And what a team! Multidisciplinary, enthusiastic, flexible team players. Some with great hats. Others less so.
Exile Medics is about far more than Been There, Done That, Got The T-Shirt. But those who have been there and done that with Exile Medics will wear their t-shirts with pride.
