The Rivette QUESTars Adventure Race Series

New Forest Adventure Race


Event Details

The fourth one-day adventure race in the 2016 Questars Adventure Race Series takes place on Saturday 3 September 2016.

The New Forest adventure race is our most popular event and that is why it's been on the Questars calendar every year for well over ten years now. And so we're pleased to confirm that in 2016 there will be another adventure race in the New Forest, this time in September as a result of the new Habitat Regulation Assessments which mean such events are no longer permitted during the ground nesting bird season.

Moving the event to September means we can use parts of the New Forest that we haven't been able to use before especially on the Trail Run, and we are also looking into the possibility of using a new venue for the kayaking so this adventure race could be quite different from previous New Forest adventure races.

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