2023 Adventure Race

Start List

If you are taking part in the 2023 Wiltshire Adventure Race, your race number, suggested start time window and kayak time slot can all be found on the start list. Do make a note of these details – you’ll need them on race day!

Please also read all the accompanying notes below which provide further important details.


You will need to know your race number in order to collect your race pack. It’s also a good idea to have some form of ID with you.

Start Times

Those kayaking first have a set start time. These are staggered to ensure everyone can get on the water safely. Everyone else has been given a start time window. You can start anytime within this window.  

Make your way to the big yellow inflatable arch when you’re ready to start. Your race time (5/6 hour time limit) begins when you dib the start control.

The maximum time allowed for the kayaking is 60 minutes. Those not kayaking first have a kayak window of 90 minutes, however only 60 minutes of this can be used.

Exceed the maximum permitted kayak time (even by 1 second) and you will incur a 50 point penalty, so don’t go over!

You can only kayak within your kayak time slot. You must have finished kayaking (i.e. be off the water having dibbed the kayak transition control) before the end of your kayak time slot, otherwise you will incur a 50 point penalty.

So if you arrive at the kayak transition halfway through your kayak time slot, you’ll only have the half of your kayak time slot that’s left remaining in which to visit kayak checkpoints.
