The Primal Quest Website has re-launched today, just five days before online registration opens for the 2008 race. Along with the site re-design, the dates for next year’s race has also been announced. PQ 2008 will kick off on June 21st and run through July 2nd. 75 coed teams of four will be racing for the $100,000 prize, which is down from the $250k prize in years.
It’s good to see PQ taking steps towards returning next year. I’m sure the top teams will be registering for the race, as it has earned itself a reputation of being the most challenging and grueling of all the major races. Primal Quest returns with a new sponsor, but will continue to be raced in the United States somewhere in the western states. The location and course have yet to be announced, but you can bet that it’ll be a long, tough race.
The new site looks good. It’s lean, easy to navigate, and offers up some good info. I’m sure they’ll be posting more updates and info in the months ahead. The real question remains though, can anyone win this race other than Nike?
