The Rivette QUESTars Adventure Race Series

New Forest, Hampshire

This event has sold out. Final details for this race can be found online here.

Event details :

The first event of the 2010 Questars series is in the eastern part of the New Forest. The area offers a great variety of terrain including classic New Forest woodlands and moors. Kayaking will be on the wonderfully scenic Beaulieu River.

The new course includes a great deal of route choice using the network of cycleways and footpaths. Whilst the area is relatively flat, the variety of terrain offers a good challenge for experienced adventure racers and novices alike.

The New Forest Questars is always the most popular event in the series. So in 2010 Masters (ie those that have competed in three or more adventure races) and Questars Duo (ie mountain biking and trail running without the kayaking stage) will be on Saturday 27 March. Novices will be on Sunday 28 March.

Event base :

Brockenhurst College, Lyndhurst Road, Brockenhurst, Hampshire SO42 7ZE

The college is very close to the railway station (on the mainline London-Bournemoth & Poole line). So why not come adventure racing by train?

Facilities available :

Large car parking area and indoor hall for briefing and prize giving, plus refreshments, changing rooms and showers.
