Quest Kenmare adventure race makes a welcome return to Kenmare on March 12.

Organisers are delighted to be able to once again stage this incredibly popular adventure challenge, last held in 2019, and include all the razzmatazz and celebration traditionally associated with the event.

Quest Kenmare will start in Kenmare town square on the morning of Saturday March 12. Participants will begin by cycling, before moving on to the run and kayak stages of the event. The stunning route will take them around Kenmare Bay, Bonane, Molls Gap and Esk Mountain, before returning to cheering crowds gathered in Kenmare town.

The event usually sells out and organisers, Elite Event Management, expect 2022 to be no exception. Nearly 1,000 people have already signed up with only eight weeks to go before race day. Increased numbers are anticipated due to the event being sorely missed by regular participants and newcomers alike, eager to take on a new year challenge.

Race organiser Oliver Kirwan welcomed a positive return to the adventure racing season, and said: “We are thrilled to be able to bring Quest Kenmare back to South Kerry and West Cork this year. After a two-year hiatus, we understand from participants that they are ready to take part in outdoor events again. Quest Kenmare continues to be a popular choice for adventure enthusiasts, and supporters wishing to make a weekend of visiting the beautiful boutique town of Kenmare and the Beara Peninsula. The healthy uptake in registrations brings a huge economic boost to the area, and we remain incredibly grateful for the unwavering support from the town and local business.’’

Participants can choose from three routes: the 28km ‘Challenge’ route, the 43km ‘Sport’ route and the 78km ‘Expert’ route. Numbers are capped for health and safety of all participants, but there remains a few spaces left for anyone wishing to register on the Quest Adventure Series website: www.questadventureseries.com
