TerraQuest Colorado Contests

TerraQuest Colorado is a series of regional contests designed to help people explore more local trails.

The game is to see who can complete all trails in contest regions. As users complete trails, they move up leaderboards that rank users by unique trail miles completed. We are releasing these contests now to help people to cope with the coronavirus pandemic by staying in their regions to explore more of their local outdoor trails safely and responsibly.

Turn trails from red to green in your scorecard.

Synced tracks that were recorded while you traveled trails within the contest region will turn your scorecard from red to green.

Note, the TerraQuest mobile app will also display a live leaderboard when the TerraQuest Colorado organization is joined and selected.
