The Rivette QUESTars Adventure Race Series

Dorset Coast Adventure Race

Event Details

The 2018 Questars Adventure Race Series kicks off with this classic adventure race in Dorset on Saturday 24 March.

It's a great location for an adventure race and a fantastic example of the British coastline at its very best with stunning views along the Jurassic Coast - the UK's first natural area to be designated a World Heritage Site back in 2001 - the same year as the very first Questars adventure race!

This area featured on Britain's Best Walks as Julia Bradbury's favourite coastal walk and it's easy to see why with 360 degree views to the Needles and the Isle of Wight, along the ancient Dorset coastline and inland over the unique Purbeck countryside.

Take part in this adventure race and some of the highlights you can look forward to include...

  • super mountain biking up on the Purbeck Hills around Corfe Castle - an 11th century fortification which commands a prominant gap in the ridgeline
  • some of the best trail running in the UK
  • spectacular coastal scenery
  • kayaking in a lovely estuary on the edge of Poole Harbour - the largest natural harbour in Europe
  • a new transition point not used before, which opens up some nice new areas

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

The course map uses Ordnance Survey 1:25000 Explorer map data - view sample of map data
NB. Give the page time to load fully - a street map appears first whilst the OS map data is being retrieved. Don't zoom out as this will change the map dataset.

If you are not familiar with 1:25000 OS maps, make sure you also have a look at the map legend
