The 2017 Questars Adventure Race Series will culminate with the annual Q2 The Quest Challenge, which will take place in the North Wiltshire Downs on Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 October.

This multi-stage two-day adventure race called Q2 The Quest Challenge is designed to appeal to everyone from complete novices to the most experienced adventure racers. There will be a great deal of choice as to the distances and routes taken to enable everyone to set their own level of challenge. And there will be time to rest and recover between the various stages.

Those who have done several Q2 adventure races in the past will know that each one is slightly different, and this will be no exception so expect a few challenges along the way.

As usual there will be an indoor hall for registration, briefing and recovery in between stages along with a field for those that want to camp overnight to do so.
