Volvo will sponsor two event vehicles for Quest over the next six months and be on hand at Quest 12/24, Quest Lough Derg and Quest Killarney so adventure racers can get to grips with the vehicles themselves. Adventure racing has become a very popular past-time in Ireland in recent years with more than 10,000 participants taking part in Quest events across the year. An alternative to triathlon and the popular mass participation half-marathons and other runs on offer, adventure racing extends beyond the physical and fosters a great sense of camaraderie and fun as part of the races.
Volvo’s model range is perfectly suited to the world of adventure, not least with award-winning new SUVs and estate cars that are safe, spacious and engineered for rugged performance with environmental efficiency, whether navigating city streets or wide-open spaces. Beyond the cars, Volvo offers a comprehensive range of accessories specifically designed for people who enjoy sports and adventure, from bespoke and secure cycle carriers, spacious roof boxes, and hard-wearing load compartment and cabin mats that are ideal when carrying wet or dirty clothing and equipment. A range of towing gear is also available.
Patricia Greene, Head of Communications at Volvo Car Ireland said: “We are excited to support such a popular sport that allows people to get out, be active and enjoy the beautiful surroundings our country has to offer. There is a sense of adventure at the heart of Volvo that makes our partnership with Quest a perfect fit.”
Quest 12/24 is a long-distance adventure race takes place on Saturday, August 31, this is followed by Quest Lough Derg on Saturday, September 14 and Quest Killarney on Saturday, October 12.
