The Rivette QUESTars Adventure Race Series

Wiltshire Downs Adventure Race


Event Details

The third one day adventure race in the 2015 series sees Questars return to the Wiltshire Downs for some great all terrain trail running and mountain biking, with optional kayaking on the tranquil Kennet & Avon canal.

Questars was last in Wiltshire in 2013 but we plan to make the 2015 course very different by kayaking on a different section of the canal and by using a totally different area for the trail run.

Saturday 11 July 2015 is the date for this one-day adventure race, so be sure to keep the day free.

Mountain bikes for this adventure race can be hired from Cyclexperience and collected from the event base on the day.

Cyclexperience have been providing a bike hire service at Questars adventure races for many years now. They are offering the usual package for Questars participants which includes delivery, onsite support, post-ride maintenance and cleaning.

Bikes must be booked in advance. As Cyclexperience are also providing bikes for another event on the same day we recommend you book a bike sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment. Full bike hire details and online booking can be found on the Cyclexperience website here.
