The Rivette QUESTars Adventure Race Series

Brecon Beacons Q2 Adventure Race

 

Event Details

The 2018 Questars Adventure Race Series will culimnate with this two-day adventure race on the first weekend in October. This event will take place in the Brecon Beacons - this is the first time a Q2 adventure race has been held in this area.

Plans for this two-day adventure race are slightly different from those in recent years with Stage 1 & 2 on Saturday mainly on bikes and Stage 4 on Sunday being a foot stage. This is to make sure you get the best out of this super area without having to go up and down the same hills / trails lots of times. Of course this also means that if you are hiring a bike you only need to hire it for one day (Saturday).
