. SEALs to Compete in “Raid Gauloises” CORONADO, Calif. (NNS) — Three Navy SEALs are undergoing an adventure in the South Pacific as part of the five-member Team American Pride, participating in an international sports event considered the ultimate race, the Raid Gauloises. The race began Oct. 17 and continues for about 10 days or until all teams have either withdrawn or completed the race.
The SEALs are Chief Boatswain’s Mates Pat Harwood and Rick Holman, and Boatswain’s Mate First Class Bruce Schliemann, instructors at the Basic Underwater Demolition and SEALs training facility in Coronado, Calif.
The team will be challenged on a race course in Borneo which has endless jungles, grottos, huge rivers and mountains. One change in the race this year is an underground segment through caves. This race will plunge the groups of men and women into another world for nine days to survive…and survive as a team. All five members must cross the finish line together.
