Event Details

This, the fifth race in the 2013 Questars Adventure Race Series, is a one day adventure race which will be held in the Midlands.

Situated on the south west side of Birmingham, within a few miles of both the M5 and the M42 motorways, the event base is easily accessible from both northern and southern England.

Participants can look forward to exploring the Severn Valley and the delights of the Wyre Forest area which straddles the north Worcestershire - south Shropshire border. Come along and enjoy mountain biking through one of the largest areas of semi-natural woodland remaining in the UK together with some splendid trail running along the picturesque banks of the River Severn.

Why not bring the family too? The West Midland Safari Park and Severn Valley Railway are both less than one mile from the event base.
