Salt Lake City, UT. April 13, 2020 — Cotopaxi, Benefit Corporation, outdoors apparel and gear brand, and founders of the popular Questival event series, today announced Questival Quaranteam, a virtual adventure experience during the nationwide shelter in place/stay at home mandate. With the current global pandemic forcing collective isolation, cancellation of physical events, and a resounding unity throughout the outdoors and general consumer spaces, Cotopaxi is proud to offer a quarantine-style version of its epic adventure scavenger hunt.
Questival Quaranteam aims to expand on the original 24-hour Questival experience and create an interactive, engaging and safe experience for those seeking fun, adventure and connection during these isolating times. Kicking off on April 23, Cotopaxi will provide a list of creative challenges to complete, ranging in difficulty and possible points, and teams of 1 to 6 people (in the same household, or teams can be formed with others via video chat) have 72 hours to complete as many as possible.
Challenges will fall into categories such as Do Good, Adventure, Quirky, Fitness/Wellness, Teamwork, and most importantly, Family, and the experience is open to all ages, from kids to Grandparents. Using the Cotopaxi Quaranteam app, available on iPhone and Android, participants upload videos and pictures of completed challenges within the 72 hour timeframe. Teams from around the globe will not only compete against but also judge each other, and the top 10 teams will win coveted prizes totalling over $6,000 from Cotopaxi.
“Our community is the heart and soul of the Cotopaxi brand,” said Davis Smith, Cotopaxi CEO. “This is an extremely difficult time for people around the world, and we wanted to ensure that beyond our charitable endeavors, we could support the families and individuals that may be struggling with this immense change. Our outdoors playground will be there for us when it is time, but right now we must stay home, stay safe and Quaranteam on.”
Event Entry Only – $10 per person
Event Entry plus a Cotopaxi Luzon 18L Backpack – $50 per person (15% off retail)
Family Event Entry – Purchase more than 4 tickets get 15% (max 2 adults and unlimited children)

The original Questival is Cotopaxi’s community-driven and community-building adventure series, a 24 hour adventure scavenger hunt, tasking teams of 2-6 people with over 300 challenges that span categories such as quirky, foodie, fitness and social impact. Having launched in 2014, Questival expanded to over 50 stops in the series, and is an immersive community building component of the Cotopaxi brand.
