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.

We are excited to announce this year’s Primal Quest champions are:

1st Place

Team Columbia Vidaraid – Godzone – #1

Total Time – 5 days, 7 hours

2nd Place

Team Bones Adventure Racing – #2

Total Time – 5 days, 9 hours, 45 minutes

3rd Place

Team Quest Racing – #5

Total Time – 5 days, 12 hours, 45 minutes
