Sweatfest was born from the long, dark days of winter in the PNW region. Zwift emerged on the scene and filled a fantastic void on how to make indoor training more fun. It took about two seconds for racing to start happening on Zwift. Zqwan started hosting a Seattle area race focused event and that spawned into the series. It's proven a nice way to train but even better way to stay in touch with race buddies. We encourage you to join discord.
