September 14-15   |   Waterfront Park

San Diego 2018


The Cotopaxi Questival is coming to San Diego to provide you a different version of the Questival Adventure Race. The experience will include solving riddles, finding physical clues, and posting team photos in a private Facebook group. You’ll start your adventure by collecting your Luzon daypack at the Friday check-in at Waterfront Park. With 24 hours there are countless chances for adventure from Torrey Pines to Coronado and beyond if you choose. After the 24 hours join us at the finish line to collect your finisher medal, hang out with other teams and, if you’re lucky, collect a prize.

Bummer... The San Diego 2018 Questival is over now, but checkout other events we have coming up!

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:

  1. Team Up

    Recruit 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.
  2. 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, how you’ll vote for challenges completed by you and other participants, and how you’ll stay in the loop on all things Questival.
  3. Check The List

    24 hours before Questival begins, you’ll receive the list of challenges in all categories, and specifics on the Event Launch.
  4. Rest Up

    Did 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.
  5. Hit The Event Launch

    Check-in, pick up your race materials, Luzon pack and free goodies, complete kickoff challenges with other teams, and enjoy music and food.
  6. Challenge Yourself

    You 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.
  7. Share The Llama Llove

    Throughout 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.
