Olof Hedberg – Team NYARA/Journey
“The Primal Quest course which was nothing short of spectacular, epic and most likely in contest for the best AR course ever designed”
“66k ft of vertical! Puts every other course into shame. Other races talk about mountains and hilly courses. This was beyond everything else.”
Long distances and few CPs. It was like a “normal” leg between most CPs. Each leg in PQ was almost like it’s own AR race in itself. I just finished USARA nationals and it was easier to finish that course, than it was to make it between many of the CPs in PQ.
Epic Whitewater. There was actually an advantage not to flip.
Ropes section! Absolutely amazing – can’t in words describe how awesome that was.

In addition to his training and competing, Roy is an executive in the Financial technology (FinTech) sector and a father of four kids, living in El Dorado Hills.
“Maria, David and Paul. You guys put on a hell of a race. MUCH harder than PQ Tahoe 2003. Details were excellent. Organization was outstanding. We could tell that your heart and soul was in the race as your bloodshot eyes revealed the depth of your own sleep deprivation throughout the week.
Volunteers- wow! What a group. May be the best I’ve seen in my 15 year racing career. Photographers, Outside TV, and sponsors. Thank you for supporting such a great sport. The drama of life gets concentrated and compressed during these races making for a rich experience. We realize it doesn’t happen without a team with the guts and resolve to do whatever is necessary to make it go. Here’s to the return of Primal Quest.
Can’t wait for 2017!” – Roy Malone – Team Bones Adventure Racing
