  1. There is a distance to suit all fitness levels

In every race we create different routes to suit different fitness levels. For example, in Quest Wales we will run the following; Challenge 25km, Sport 42km and Expert 53km. All routes entail a mix of running, cycling and kayaking. If you are relatively fit then the Challenge route is a great place to start, before you know it you’ll be graduating to the Sport route. The Challenge route breaks down as follows; 6km cycle, 1km kayak, 7km run and you finish the event with a 9km cycle and a short 100m dash to the finish line.

  1. You get to kayak and it’s fun

The kayak element of each race is relatively short, approx 1km, and most participants report back that it’s the most fun part. We provide the kayak and you simply jump aboard with the next person who comes along  and enjoy the cruise.

  1. It’s quite the party

Part of the Quest Series is about simply about having fun. That’s why we aim to create a finish line with a party atmosphere. You’ll find fun, family, friends, food and drink as well as plenty of other Quest participants ready to celebrate their great personal achievement. To add to this Betws-y-Coed is a beautiful part of the world and truly and adventure playground. Check out our recommendations for all the other cool stuff you can get up to around there before or after the event (if you have the energy!).

  1. You get a cool t-shirt and medal to go with the huge sense of pride and awesomeness you feel after completing the race!

You will get a cool Helly-Hansen Quest-branded technical training top and a customised event finisher medal at the finish. As for how you will feel when you cross the line, well, that’s difficult to explain, but let’s just say it’s not to be missed and you definitely won’t regret it.

  1. You’ll be hooked
