Explore New Spaces with Questival
Cotopaxi is bringing the Cotopaxi Questival to Denver. Questival is a 24-hour adventure race where teams of 2-6 friends explore the unknown in their city and the wild spaces around it, doing things they never thought possible, and sharing the stoke with a fun and supportive community.
The Questival series promotes team building, immersion in the outdoors, a think-outside-the-box attitude, and a willingness to participate in sometimes-outlandish activities. More so than that, Questival promotes Doing Good, playing off Cotopaxi’s motto to Do Good. At each Questival event, a challenge list of 300+ experiences is designated to teams, made up of two to six participants, that are tasked with creatively completing as many challenges as possible in 24 hours. Whether performing yoga poses or mailing a postcard to a veteran, eating a taco with no hands or climbing a 5.10 route, each team navigates its own unique experience and adventure.
As the first-ever venture-backed Benefit Corporation, Cotopaxi focuses on social impact and encouraging adventure and sustainable outdoors experiences. Poverty alleviation and targeted grants are at the forefront of its resource allocation, and Cotopaxi aims to advance health, education, and livelihoods initiatives around the world. From sustainably sourced products, repurposed materials, and product lines specifically designed with particular community or agricultural support in mind, a purpose-driven philosophy permeates all of Cotopaxi’s operations, including the Questival event series.
Points collection and task completion are tracked in real-time using The Questival App, available for iPhone and Android. Each participant receives a limited-edition Luzon 18L Backpack ($40 value). The kickoff party includes music, food, giveaways, and community-driven experiences. Each participant who attends the Closing Ceremonies will also receive a Questival medal!
