2009 Primal Quest Sprint Series Locations Announced

thumb john nantes pq 2006 0007
An update to the Primal Quest Sprint Series website has revealed the locations for future races in the adventure racing series that is about to launch it’s inaugural season. In addition to the 2008 events, which will be held at Pocahontas State Park, in Chesterfield VA (May 10), Moraine State Park, Pittsburgh, PA (Sept. 6), and the US National Whitewater Center, Charlotte, NC (Oct. 4) the following states have been selected to host races in 2009:

•February: Florida
•April: Louisiana
•May: Virginia
•August: Connecticut
•September: Pennsylvania
•October: North Carolina
•November: Georgia

Exact dates and locations have yet to be announced, but as you can see, the Spring Series is getting off the ground very quickly, with events already being planned all over the country. These 4-6 hour events will pit teams of two against one another to not only claim wins at the individual races, but to gain points that will count toward the series as a whole. The top racer at the end of the season will gain entry into the 2010 Primal Quest Expedition Race as well.

With some great events planned for this year, and these races set for next, the PQSS is shaping up to be one of the premiere adventure race series in the country.

  1. Many more locations, nice.

    Off topic, how can we petition for the AT to be map on Google maps, now and not in 2 yrs? Any clue?

  2. Yep! The PQSS is ramping up nicely. Should be quite an interesting series next year.

    As for the Google Maps, I couldn’t find a way to contact them directly to make a request, but it’s a really good question. I’m surprised that the AT isn’t already marked on Google Maps. It’s probably in Google Earth though considering all the plug-ins and layers.

  3. Ok, cool.

    Interesting I have Google Earth but I rarely use it since I don’t have a GPS Device/KML files and all that jazz. I also don’t use it because it’s an application. Maybe I’m missing out. I just always rely on Google Maps, for viewing, directions and even printing.

    I see what you mean. They have the shelters on the AT, now lets see if I can get a line plotted. Maybe I’m asking for too much. 🙂

  4. I usually use Google Maps when looking for directions as well. Just faster and easier and don’t need to fire up a separate app like you suggested. But I love Google Earth for other things. There is a ton of stuff to look at in there, and you can explore the globe in a virtual fashion for sure. Plus, with all those built in layers and user added mods, you can really extend the reach of the program. You can even create your own “virtual tours”. Really a great program.
