The Rivette QUESTars Adventure Race Series

New Forest, Hampshire


Sorry but both the adventure race on Saturday 24 March and the adventure race on Sunday 25 March are now full. If you've missed out on a place, why not enter the Purbeck race on the 26 May instead?

Event Details

The first event in the 2012 Questars Adventure Race Series returns to an area of the New Forest not used last year. The event base is ideally located in the heart of the New Forest and is within easy walking distance from Brockenhurst railway station, which is on the London mainline if you want to come by train.

The new course covers a great variety of terrain including classic New Forest woodlands and moors, and it utilises the extensive network of cycleways and footpaths to offer a great deal of route choice. Whilst the area is relatively flat, the variety of terrain offers a good challenge for experienced adventure racers and novices alike. Kayaking will be on the tidal estuary part of the wonderfully scenic Beaulieu River.

The New Forest Questars is always the most popular adventure race in the series. So again in 2012 the Questars Trio Masters and Questars Duo races will be held on Saturday 24 March, and the Questars Trio Novices race will be on Sunday 25 March.

In previous years all available places have sold out many weeks ahead of the closing date for entries. So its recommended that you enter online early to secure a place.
