It's all about the taking part
Questars adventure races are all about having a go and taking part. The race format has been carefully designed with this in mind, to be as flexible and inclusive as possible, to enable people to participate irrespective of their ability or experience.
There are a number of checkpoints available to visit for each of the three disciplines. The trail run checkpoints must be visited on foot, whilst a bicycle and a kayak must be used to reach the mountain bike checkpoints and the kayak checkpoints respectively. You can visit as many or as few of the checkpoints as you like.
Each checkpoint has a points value, and these are the points you will earn by visiting that checkpoint. The winners are those that score the most points within the time limit.
A non-stop race
The race is continuous (non-stop). Transition from one discipline to another is all part of the race. You will have some choice in the order that you undertake each discipline (how much depends on the course and whether you kayak).
Navigating between the checkpoints is simple and straight forward. For example, the run checkpoints are positioned so that the quickest route between them is typically along existing public rights of way (footpaths and bridleways) which are often well marked on the ground.
