Quest Glendalough 2020 has been postponed

It is with heavy hearts NARS has taken the decision to postpone Quest Glendalough 2020. They hope to run the event on a later, yet-to-be-confirmed, date. This postponement is due to the sudden and dramatic impact Covid-19 is having. The health of the participants, the team, and all their family and friends is of the utmost importance for NARS and us, hence why they have taken these steps at this time.

We will be in touch with a new date as soon as it is confirmed.

We would ask all our participants to follow the Department of Health guidance closely.

We are doing our best to work through this difficult phase and respond to events as they happen. Please be patient with us during this time and be assured we will be in touch as and when required to keep you up to date with plans for the event. Please feel free to email NARS at if you have any questions.

Upcoming NARS Events


Adventure races normally take place on a single day and consist of various routes in some of the most spectacular parts of Ireland where you will run, cycle and kayak from start to finish. Adventure racers have mixed fitness abilities and there are options for novice to the regular racer at most events.

Adventure Racers can be presented with a mixture of tough geographical conditions in various races, from rough trail running to gravel lined roads therefore footwear and tyres need to take all those stresses and strains in their stride!

Choosing the right footwear and the right road bike tyres is essential, they can help with increased grip, ride comfort and better slipping or rolling resistance.

Continental is more than a car tyre brand; we also offer award winning grip for bike tyres and we continue to enjoy a successful relationship with adidas footwear to provide grip for their premium running and trail shoes – ideal for adventure racing.

In February 2019, Continental Tyres became the official partner of the Irish National Adventure Race Series (NARS). The Continental Tyres National Adventure Race Series contains two categories: ‘Expert’ and ‘Sport’. 

At the end of each adventure racing season, races in the Continental Tyres NARS are reviewed and assessed for eligibility and suitability for the upcoming year. The Continental Tyres NARS does not have any input in to the organisation or operation of any of the qualifying events in the series. They are independent events that have reached a standard that is required for selection to compete in the series.
