Primal Quest, Pure 2018 – WINNING TEAMS!

SQUAMISH, British Columbia – (September 12, 2018) 

Primal Quest Pure was a late-night finish at the Executive Suites Hotel in Squamish, British Columbia, with our winning team, Columbia Vidaraid – Godzone, crossing the finish-line at nearly Midnight on September 11th.

On what has become a traditional rainy finish, teams crossed the threshold of a dripping wet Primal Quest arch, each of the 4 racers (now 2-Time Primal Quest winner Sarah Fairmaid, with Nick Gracie, Jon Ander Arambalza & Urtzi Iglesias) finished with a final rush of excitement, cold Backcountry Brewing IPA and new Primal Quest championship title.
