Quest GEO is the latest innovation from Quest events and is billed as the largest socially distanced adventure of the summer.
It will take place on Saturday and Sunday 8th and 9th August 2020 and will give participants the opportunity to run and cycle their way around a choice of nine locations across the country at their chosen time.
Each Quest GEO consists of one route of between 40 and 50km in length involving running and cycling with either six or seven checkpoints.
Participants can complete the route at any time over the course of the two days, navigating their way around their chosen location via a geo caching app which they will receive access to in advance.
While the event is structured to be undertaken independently and is unsupported, participants will receive a detailed online information pack in advance of the event with everything they need to know to complete their summer adventure.
To add to the excitement exact route details will not be released until three days before the event.
The nine stunning locations include Killarney, Kenmare, Lough Derg, Glendalough, Cork, the Dublin Mountains, Wexford, Carlingford and Achill, each offering their own unique experience in spectacular surroundings.
“We have had to reschedule some of our events and we know this has been difficult and has caused disappointment for people,” said Director of Quest Events, Oliver Kirwan.
“Quest GEO offers new and experienced adventure racers the chance to shake off the cobwebs, set a goal for the summer and participate safely.”
“We are so fortunate in Ireland to be surrounded by some of the most amazing scenery in the world and we encourage everyone to embrace the outdoors in their locality this summer.
Participants are urged to comply with all government advice relating to Covid-19, particularly maintaining social distancing at all times and not to congregate. An online leader board will be available and one winner from each event shall receive free entry to the standard Quest of their choice in 2021.
Participants can register for their chosen location online at https://www.questadventureseries.com/register/.
The multi-disciplined Quest Adventure Series will resume in the Autumn with Quest Killarney on 10th October and Quest Glendalough on 31st October.
