The Rivette QUESTars Adventure Race Series

Wiltshire Downs, Wilts.





The last Questars adventure race we held in Wiltshire was very popular, with all available kayak places selling out a few weeks beforehand. So don't leave it until the last minute to enter online otherwise you may find that all the kayak places have been taken.

Event Details

The fourth adventure race in the 2013 Questars series makes a welcome return to the Vale of Pewsey, which lies between the uplands of Salisbury Plain to the south and the Marlborough Downs to the north.

It's a significantly different course to the last Questars adventure race held there two year's ago, with the kayaking on a different stretch of the Kennet & Avon canal and the trail run starting and finishing from a different point. So do join us for this race, regardless of how many times you've done the Wiltshire Downs Questars adventure race before, and enjoy the new challenge.

Pewsey railway station is less than a mile from the event base, so you could always come by train if you'd prefer.
