Remember last week when I mentioned that the winner of the 2008 Costal Challenge would receive an invite to Primal Quest? Well, it seems the winners of that race aren’t the only ones to receive such an honor.
It has been announced on the PQ website that the winner of the GoLite USARA Adventure Racing National Championship will also receive a coveted slot in the Primal Quest field next year.
The USARA Championship is scheduled to be held November 2-3 in Potosi, Missouri. The teams competing in the event have earned the right to be there by finishing in the top 3 at one of the 45 regional qualifying races. Teams consist of three co-ed members, who navigate through courses and compete by trekking, mountain biking, and paddling their way to victory.
Looks like we’ll have another team to add to the PQ line-up in a couple of weeks.
Edit: In case I didn’t make it completely clear, the winner of this race receives a slot in PQ, but it isn’t a paid entry. Just like the winner of the Coastal Challenge, they receive a reserved spot, but still need to come up with the entry fee.
