The Rivette QUESTars Adventure Race Series

2020 Wiltshire Downs Event – Postponed to Saturday 10 October

We are sorry to announce that we have had to postpone the 2020 Wiltshire Downs Adventure Race, that was due to take place at the end of this month, due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Despite our determination at the start of this week to ensure those that wanted to could still enjoy a day of running, biking and kayaking in the wonderful Wiltshire countryside at the end of this month, and The Quest Team putting in a huge amount of additional work to make this happen, developments over the past 48 hours have made this impossible.




We understand the decision to postpone the 2020 Wiltshire Downs Adventure Race to Saturday 10th October 2020 will please some people and not others.

It is not a decision we have taken lightly. In the 20 years of Questars Adventure Races, we have never had to take this step before, despite the foot and mouth outbreak threatening to do so in our very first season way back in 2001.

These are exceptional circumstances beyond our control and as event organisers, we have to make a decision for the event as a whole (and not based on the circumstances of individual participants).

We therefore kindly ask that you respectfully understand our decision even if you don’t necessarily agree with it.



What will happen to my entry?

2020 Wiltshire Downs Adventure Race entries will be automatically carried over to, and are therefore valid for the rescheduled event on, Saturday 10th October 2020.



What if I can’t make it on Saturday 10 October 2020?

Alternatively, you are welcome to find someone else to replace you and take your place.

You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to let us know i) the event you wish to transfer your entry over to and ii) your entry ID number (which can be found on your entry confirmation email).



Ultimately, the sport we all love will survive. Stay safe and look after each other during these challenging times. We hope to see you at a Questars Adventure Race later this year.
