Rosslyn To Host Day-Long Adventure Race Starting Friday

The 24-hour Questival Adventure Race will arrive in Rosslyn on Friday as part of its 2017 tour of the Mid-Atlantic.

The race begins at Gateway Park (1300 Lee Highway) at 7 p.m. on May 19. Teams of two to six will complete a series of challenges across 24 hours that could be about anything from fitness to food, with winning prizes worth up to $10,000.

Currently the quests are unknown and the challenge list will be sent out to teams 24 hours in advance.

“Whether it’s adventure & fitness, food, service, or teamwork, your quest will include challenges that push you out of your comfort zone,” the Questival website reads. “Anyone can do it, but only the slightly neurotic thrive.”

The race’s official website advises participants to bring gear such as swimsuits, tennis shoes and camping gear. Participants track their team’s challenge progress throughout the race on an app, where the judges will then decide on the winning teams.

Online registration is still open; entry costs $46 per person.
