Past Trips & Events
Myrmidon Mash @ SDCC - San Diego, CA - 3 April 2016
Relay Teams of 4 will competed in the beach runs, swim, standup paddle board and Oar Board, & inflatable team boat competitions. Teams of military veterans, Olympic medalists, high school and collegiate athletes came together to compete and win their own Myrmidon paddle trophy. This was a sprint, not a marathon where world-class performers & individuals like you formed lasting friendships while pushing themselves to new limits.
Mt Rainier - Washington, USA - March 2016
An unofficial personal trip for one of our Cadre and his friends, the team stepped off with the intent of working on winter glacial mountaineering training. On 26 March, conditions changed rapidly on the mountain and the Myrmidon mission immediately shifted from skills training to a real-world rescue operation. Myrmidon, along with two other mountaineering groups on the mountain, partook in initiating SAR and patient stabilization operations for multiple climbers in need.
Redbull High Stakes Race 2015 - Boston, MA - 22 August 2015
A top-tier group of military veterans joined international level rowers and Olympians in this one day event. Pairing world class athletes and peak level veterans, we demonstrated the benefits of partnership and shared mutual traits that have made each participant the best at their chosen profession.
