The Rivette QUESTars Adventure Race Series

Dorset Adventure Race


Event Details

The first adventure race in the 2016 Questars Adventure Race Series takes place on Saturday 19 March 2016, so make a note of the date and keep it free!

For the first time in over ten years this race will not take place in the New Forest as a result of the new Habitat Regulation Assessments which mean such events are no longer permitted during the ground nesting bird season. Instead it will take place a few miles further west in the neighbouring and beautiful county of Dorset.

We shall be using the same event base as we used in 2014 as it ticks all the boxes in terms of the facilities required, but there the similarities end with a different location lined up for the kayaking (no mud this time!) and the trail run.

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