If we have any spare, we will then put them to one side for you to collect from the enquiries desk on the day.

Directions & Car Parking

The Questars event base is at Brockenhurst College, Lyndhurst Road, Brockenhurst, Hampshire SO42 7ZE.

View map showing event base location here

There will be event signage to direct you from the A337 through the main college entrance and around to the car parking area. Please do share transport if possible. If each team comes in one vehicle it’ll be much kinder to the environment and you’ll also be able to talk team tactics on the way!

Transition Points

Upon arrival take your bike to the bike depot. All teams will be starting and finishing their race on bikes. There are remote transition points to the run and kayak stage. Once you start you won't return to Brockenhurst College until you finish so you will need to carry everything with you for the whole race. Thus if you wish to wear different footwear for the run stage you'll need to carry these with you. After setting up your bike in the bike depot follow the Quest signage to the sports hall to collect your team pack and attend the Race Briefing.

Facilities

Facilities at Questars event base include:

  • a large indoor hall for the Race Briefings and Prize Giving plus showers and toilets
  • hot food and drinks available throughout the day - refreshments available include sausage baps upon arrival and a hot dish after the race
  • map pens available to buy from the Enquiries Desk
