Fri 2/16-Sat 2/17Questival Adventure Race
An outdoorsy apparel and gear company that aims to “make a positive impact on the world,” Salt Lake City-based Cotopaxi is bringing its signature Questival Adventure Race to the Alamo City. Billed as “the world’s best outdoor adventure race,” the 24-hour challenge encourages teams of two or more to complete unique tasks grounded in fitness, culture, food and charity. In the vein of The Amazing Race, the Questival might task teams with crafting a functional canoe from cardboard, singing a love song on the Riverwalk, climbing to the top of Enchanted Rock … or donating blood while donning Dracula teeth. Each individual racer will receive a Cotopaxi backpack at the check-in party in Crockett Park (6-8pm). Attendees can download the Questival app and register online one day before the race to receive their challenge list. Last call for racers to join in on the hunt or assemble a group will be during check-in hours. The 20 groups that complete the most challenges will win a portion of $10,000 worth of sports gear, trips and other prizes. $47 (entrance fee subject to change), 7pm Fri-7pm Sat, Crockett Park, 1300 N. Main Ave., (844) 268-6729, cotopaxi.com. — Lori Salazar
