Quest Kenmare 2022

We are super excited to be on the road this weekend 12th March, to partner up with Quest Adventure Races for Quest Kenmare. Quest Adventure Races are one-day, multi-sport events which offer participants the opportunity to run, cycle and of course, kayak through Ireland’s most scenic landscapes.

The race starts in the Square in Kenmare and takes place through the breath-taking surrounds of Kenmare on the Wild Atlantic Way. Quest Kenmare has three routes, the 28km Challenge, 44km Sport and the 78km Expert routes. Registration has sold out for this event but never fear, we have put together the perfect guide for you to soak up the atmosphere of Kenmare this weekend, whether you are taking part and want to make a weekend of it or want to come along and enjoy the charm and buzz of Kenmare, before, during and after the event.

MCG Kayaks will be at the event on Saturday with single kayaks, double kayaks, paddle boards, surfboards and our full range of accessories including trollies, soft roof racks, dry robes and wetsuits. Be sure to check us out if you are making the trip.
