The Rivette QUESTars Adventure Race Series

Brecon Beacons,

South Wales

The ever popular Brecon Beacons National Park is the venue for this second event in the 2011 Questars series. All available places are normally sold out weeks before the closing date for entries. So do enter online early to secure a place.

It's a favourite area for adventure racing with great terrain and majestic views. Trail running and mountain biking checkpoints will be scattered over the surrounding hills and vales providing a challenge to both novices and the most experienced of participants. Kayaking is on a lovely tranquil section of the Monmouth & Brecon canal.

The splendid peaks of the Brecon Beacons provide a backdrop to the area. Why not stay over and explore more of the area on the Sunday?
