How it works
During Questival, you and your teammates set your sights on the stars and blast off on a totally personal and authentic adventure, all within a lively festival environment. Here are the Seven Steps to Questival:
Team UpRecruit your pals (up to six people per team) and come up with a ridiculously amazing team name. Team costumes are totally encouraged. Team chants make us swoon. Make sure everyone registers here as part of your team.
Get The AppDownload 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, how you’ll vote for challenges completed by you and other participants, and how you’ll stay in the loop on all things Questival.
Check The List24 hours before Questival begins, you’ll receive the list of challenges in all categories, and specifics on the Event Launch.
Rest UpDid we mention Questival runs overnight? Come well rested. Make your game plan with your teammates. Hydrate. Stretch those hammies. Put on your get psyched music.
Hit The Event LaunchCheck-in, pick up your race materials, Luzon pack and free goodies, complete kickoff challenges with other teams, and enjoy music and food.
Challenge YourselfYou and your teammates complete challenges in a broad range of vertical categories and across three levels of commitment. The more categories you explore, the more opportunities you have to win Category Awards and other prizes.
Share The Llama LloveThroughout Questival, use the app to react to other teams’ challenge successes and to celebrate your own. The more Llama Llove that’s shared, the more awards earned by everyone. Plus, sharing the llove just makes you feel nice inside. In the rare instance that you see something unfair, unsafe or just plain unllamalike, you can flag the image for a Cotopaxi staff member to review.
