The Rivette QUESTars Adventure Race Series

South Downs Adventure Race


Event Details

The fourth and final one-day adventure race in the 2015 Questars adventure race series will take place on the first Saturday in September.

Following the popularity of the two-day adventure races held in the South Downs in recent years we have decided to return to the South Downs in 2015 and hold our first one-day adventure race there.

The area has everything for a great adventure race with some pleasant kayaking on moving water and a vast network of bridleways for some great off road biking giving plenty of route choice. There's also some excellent trail running over varied terrain which includes one or two optional hills for those that like the extra challenge - and views!
