The Rivette QUESTars Adventure Race Series

Brecon Beacons Q2 Adventure Race


Enter Questars adventure races online here

The 2018 Questars Adventure Race Series will culimnate with this two-day adventure race on the first weekend in October.

We are planning to take this event to the Brecon Beacons which will be the first time this area has been used for a Q2 adventure race.

Provisional plans are for this two-day adventure race to be a bit 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 may only need to hire it for one day (Saturday) and not two. We will let you know if this is the case when bike hire bookings open (typically 3 months before the event).
