The Rivette QUESTars Adventure Race Series

South Downs Adventure Race

Event Details

The fourth and final one-day adventure race in the 2018 Questars Adventure Race Series will take place on Saturday 1st September 2018 in the central part of the South Downs.

Following the popularity of the last adventure race to be held there, Questars will be returning to a tried and tested venue after a break of three years.

This area has everything for a great adventure race with some lovely kayaking on gentle tidal water and a vast network of bridleways for some great off road cycling giving plenty of route choice. There's also some excellent trail running over varied terrain which includes one or two hills (optional of course) for those that like the extra challenge and the views!

This adventure race follows the usual race format for one-day Questars adventure races.
