18 Jan ZwiftQuest Saturday – Race 3
Take an adventure around Watopia this Saturday January 20th. The aim of the ZwiftQuest is to navigate around Watopia to all the checkpoints in the fastest way possible or the shortest route.
You can complete all the checkpoints in any order and navigate to them by any route. Plan ahead of time, strategize your route or just go for it on the day, it is up to you!
Joining the in-game events will send you on a route towards the Volcano, just before the Volcano Lap Arch, the event fucntion will end and you will be free to navigate. Your quest will start when you pass under the Volcano Lap Arch for the first time (so do this first) and it will end once you have navigated to all the checkpoints and passed under the Volcano Lap Arch for the final time in your ride (don’t forget to do this). You can take any direction at junctions you want, make u-turns, use power-ups, draft and swap bikes if you want to complete the quest.
Join one of the events in game to get yourself started then navigate to where you want to go 👇
In order to qualify your attempt you must save your ride with “ZQSAT20” in the activity name and upload to Strava. You must also login in Strava at ZwiftQuest.com so that your attempt will be included in the results.

Q. The “event” is really more of a warm up, yes? Do users have to join the event in order to qualify?
A. Yeah a warm up, get everyone together before the mayhem breaks out and the u-turns start
Q. Do you need to connect your Strava to ZwiftQuest.com before the event? Or can you do it after?
A. You can do it after the event
Q. If I’m so tired after the event and I forget to name my Ride ZQSAT20, can I change it in Strava after?
A. You can edit in Strava afterwards
Q. Do I need to do anything at the checkpoints? (e.g., take a picture, give a Ride On, etc.)
A. No just ride past them – the website validates that you go there through the GPS position of the checkpoint.
Q. For finishing, does it matter what direction I pass under the Volcano arch?
A. Any direction
