The Rivette QUESTars Adventure Race Series

Q2 The Quest Challenge

South Downs, West Sussex





The final event of the 2013 Questars Adventure Race Series will be held on the weekend of the 5 & 6 October 2013 in Southern England.

After the popularity of last year's event, this two-day adventure race will return to the South Downs, but this time it will be in West Sussex rather than East Sussex.

Event Details

This multi-stage two-day adventure race called Q2 The Quest Challenge is designed to appeal to everyone from complete novices to the most experienced adventure racers. There will be a great deal of choice as to the distances and routes taken to enable everyone to set their own level of challenge. And there will be time to rest and recover between the various stages.

Those who have done several Q2 adventure races in the past will know that each one is slightly different, and this challenge will be no exception, so expect a few surprises along the way.

Event Base

Duncton Village Hall & Recreation Ground, Duncton, Petworth, West Sussex, GU28 OJY

Facilities Available

Car parking area and indoor room for registration, the race briefing and prize giving.

Participants can camp in the event field. Those who don't want to camp are welcome to find their own alternative accommodation. This event is designed so you can easily stay off site if you'd prefer.
