The Rivette QUESTars Adventure Race Series

Q2 Adventure Race

Central England (East) - Thetford Forest



Participant Information

Final details for those taking part in the 2014 Thetford Forest Questars adventure race.


Team List

Your team number, kayak timeslot and kayak group can all be found on the team list here. Do make a note of these. If you have any last-minute entry amendments just let us know on the day at registration.

Important Notes:

Although the Stage 1 kayak slots are different lengths, everyone has the same maximum amount of time on the water which is 90 minutes (the first kayak slot is longer to accommodate the staggered starts as not everyone can get on the water at the same time).

The staggered start time shown only applies to those stages which have staggered starts (see the stage summary) and is shown as a + and then a number. This number is the approximate number of minutes after the stage start time given on the stage summary that you will start. So if your staggered start time is +5  then you will start stage 3 at approximately 2035 (5 minutes after the staggered starts begin at 2030). This is only a guide, hence it's important you arrive at the start at least 5 minutes before your predicted start time.
