Directions & Car Parking

The Questars event base is at Christ College, Brecon LD3 8AF 

View map showing event base location here

Download directions and map here

Its suggested that you download and print off the map of the event base so that you find your way through Brecon easily and know the various entrances to the college campus. Parking is in three different areas within the campus. These will be filled in turn so follow the Quest signage to the current entrance being used.

Please do share transport if possible. If each team comes in one vehicle it’ll be much kinder to the environment and you’ll also be able to talk team tactics on the way!

Transition Points

Upon arrival take your bike to the bike depot next to the sports hall. After setting up your bike in the bike depot follow the Quest signage to the sports hall to collect your team pack and attend the Race Briefing.
