What our adventurers said about Quest 12 Beara 2021

“You promised an event to take us to our limits and beyond and boy did you deliver. I’m renaming it Beauty & the Beast…. cos it was stunningly beautiful and mega tough. Route was really well marked and marshalled, thank you to everyone involved, (before during and after). The golf club proved a very convenient base and had a good vibe about it on the day. I am super chuffed to have finished the day in one piece and TG recovering well!  The following morning I returned to Garinish beach for a dip to cool off the legs and it was heavenly. Fingers crossed, will make it back to Beara with family in the not too distant future, and can take the time to savour it…. with a good picnic and not a cut off in sight!”

“Well done to the Quest team, fantastic event … course spectacular and well marked/ marshalled! A mighty day.”

“Very well organised and sign posted and great day to be part of.”

 

“A very well run event as always.”

“Couldn’t measure how thankful to Ollie, the whole Quest Team and all the participants. You are all legends!! What an experience.”

“Unbelievable work went into that event. Credit to all the marshalls and organisers.”

“Fair play to all the Quest Ireland team … incredibly well run event as usual.”
