QUESTars Notice Board

The Quest Adventure Race Series is expanding in 2011 and the series leaderboard is changing to reflect this. Read more here.

Entries to events are already higher than this time last year. As the first Questars race in the New Forest at the end of March is always the most popular adventure race in the series make sure you enter online now before all the places sell out.

Also the brand new QX - Off Road Duathlon and Trail Run series starts in February. Enter the first race by Sunday 23 January and save money on your entry fee.


Quest Adventure Race Series Leaderboard expands in 2011

Following the success of last year's first Q2 The Quest Challenge weekend event there will be two Q2 events in 2011. So Q2 events will be included in the Quest Adventrure Race Series Leaderboard in 2011. More details of these multi stage events can be found on the Purbeck race page and the Thetford Forest race page.


The 2011 series leaderboard will change as follows :

  • your best Q2 result will count alongside your best three Questars results
  • Questars and Q2 event results will be converted into series points by reference to the winner's race score
  • series scores will be calculated per individual competitor

Categories of competitor will still be shown on the series leaderboard. So even if you are not at the top of the leaderboard you may still follow how you are doing relative to your fellow category participants. Full details of how the series scores will be calculated can be found on the Series Leaderboard page.

Questars and Q2 events are provng as popular as ever. Entries so far are higher than in the same period last year. In 2010 all available places sold out well before the closing date for entries. So if you intend to take part in future Questars and Q2 events do enter online soon.
