Questival Chicago

Questival isn’t your typical race, and it’s not a competition in the same vein as a trail run or triathlon. The best way to describe it is as a city-based, 24-hour version of The Amazing Race. You and your team of two to six people set off from the check-in party to complete points-based challenges that incorporate adventure, fitness, food, service, and teamwork. The more points you accumulate and the more challenges you complete, the more likely you are to win trips and gear worth more than $10,000 in total. Races are offered all over the country, but if you’re looking for a cool way to tour some of America’s biggest cities, hit up the Chicago race in August, then consider adding one or two events to your fall lineup. Los Angeles’ race is held in September, and New York’s is in October.

When: August 25-26, 2017

Where: Chicago, IL
