The Cotopaxi x HOKA Questival is a 24-hour adventure race where teams of two to six friends team up to complete COVID-responsible, community-oriented challenges that push them to explore the unknown in their city and the wild spaces around it. An experience like no other, this unique collab Questival is all about getting on your feet and relishing the kaleidoscopic wonders of our great planet. Now is your chance to Chase the Bright Side.
How to Chase the Bright Side
During this Questival, complete challenges inspired by our collaboration at home, in your community, and in the great outdoors. This is your chance to channel the spirit of the year’s brightest season for a totally personal and authentic adventure, all in the company of the people you love most. Ready? Here’s how you do it:
Recruit your friends (up to six people per team) and come up with a unique team name (inside jokes welcome!). Think team costumes, chants, and temporary tattoos—your options are endless. Make sure everyone registers as part of your team.
Get the App
Download the free Questival app and make sure your teammates do, too. Poke around and familiarize yourself with all the tabs. The app is how you’ll prove you accomplished challenges and react to others’ posts. *All ticket sales are final.
Plan Your Adventure
One week before Questival begins, you’ll receive the pre-race challenge list, which is a set of extra challenges that are optional to complete for extra points before Questival officially starts. In partnership with REI, HOKA’s Field Team is hosting virtual or in-person (COVID-safe) trail cleanup events in select cities that we would love to have you join. On April 22nd, we’ll release the official challenge list so you can make your plan!
Once the event begins, you have 24 hours to complete as many challenges as possible across five categories. The more challenges you explore, the more points (and fun!) you’ll have.
Did we mention we’re in COVID times? Yeah, definitely still a thing. So only team up with your close circle, wear your mask, maintain a safe distance from those around you, and obey your local COVID laws. You can even form a team virtually and compete with friends in other locations, so you can complete challenges individually and in a more socially-distanced way. We’re all about staying safe and being good citizens!
Share the Llama Love
Throughout Questival, use the app to react to other teams’ successes and to celebrate your own. A mixture of challenges completed and likes received determines your final rank. But Questival’s not really about winning or losing now, is it?
