Want to get a look at what Montana has to offer in the way of adventure racing before Primal Quest kicks off in June? Then look no further than the Mountain Adventure Race which will take place May 15th through the 18th in that state.
The race is currently being billed as a “tune-up” for PQ, and what a tune-up it’ll be. Teams consisting of either 2 or 4 members will race across a 300 mile long course competing in the typical adventure racing disciplines of trekking, mountain biking, paddling, and ropes. This is a supported event and teams can get certified for PQ by attending the two-day certification clinic prior to the race.
The Mountain Adventure Race, who have signed on to be a sponsor for Primal Quest, will take place near Bozeman. Registration opened a few days ago, and it’s limited to 40 teams, so if you want to take part in this tune-up, you’ll want to sign up soon. The prices are quite reasonable as well, with the entry fee weighing in at $1950 for a four person team, and $1100 for two. The PQ certification clinic will run you another $350/racer however.
This looks like it should be a great event, and possibly a nice sneak peek at PQ just six weeks later. It’ll certainly introduce the racers to “Big Sky Country” and get them acquainted with Montana and everything it has to offer.
