An update at the Primal Quest website today announces an entirely new adventure race set for this fall. The event is called the Blackwater Escape and Evasion Adventure Race, and it promises to put a new spin on the existing formula of AR.
The race will be 24-hours in length and have teams of two tackling the usual round of adventure racing disciplines such as mountain biking, trail running, paddling, and so on. But as the name implies, there will be more to this race than just that. And since the even is being backed by Blackwater, yes that Blackwater, you know there will be some really unique elements to it. The race is scheduled for November 7th and 8th in Moyock, North Carolina.
The teaser press release promises more information will be fourth coming with a website going up in the near future, and more information on what teams can expect. Judging from the title however, I think you can gather what this race will involve. It definitely sounds like it’ll be one to keep an eye on, and should be a lot of fun in November.
