EX2 Venture Quest 2021
September 18 - September 19
VentureQuest Adventure Race
VQ returns on Saturday and Sunday September 18+19, 2021 to Fountainhead Regional Park with a brand new course!! VQ has challenged, rewarded, and inspired close to 3500 athletes in its 11 year history. VQ is where is all began for EX2!
We’re excited to offer a 12-hour course on 9/18 and a 6-hour course on 9/19.
VentureQuest is a sprint adventure race that is held in Fairfax County just 45 minutes west of Washington DC. The terrain is gorgeous and has a truly remote feel for being so close to a major metro area. Racers love the fact that they can compete in a challenging adventure race so close to home.
In 2021, VentureQuest will feature both a sprint 6-hour adventure race and a 12-hour middle distance adventure race. In each event, competitors are tasked with navigating to find a series of checkpoints, all while trekking, biking, and paddling the beautiful areas in and around Fountainhead Regional Park. There are plenty of surprises, twists, and decision making in this race, all of which will cost or save time for each team.
Team members must travel together the entire race. VQ is not a relay. That’s part of the fun! You’re team is as fast as your slowest teammate! The best teams will work together and help each other to go fast as a team.
