The Rivette QUESTars Adventure Race Series

 

Series Championship

The Questars Adventure Race Series Championship runs annually each calendar year.

Each series starts with the first Questars adventure race in that calendar year (typically in March) and ends with the last adventure race in that calendar year (usually September / October time).

Full details about the Questars Adventure Race Series Championship can be found below. Past championship results can be found on the series leaderboards attached to the top of this page.

 

Summary Points

  • Your top three one-day (or equivalent) Questars results count towards your series score. Q2 two-day race results count as the equivalent of two one-day Questars results.
  • No registration is required to take part in the series - series scores are automatically calculated for every finisher of every race, irrespective of the number of races they've done.
  • Series scores are calculated for every unique team member's name so make sure your name is spelt the same for every race that you enter.
  • Changing teams / team names / categories throughout the series won't affect your series score.
  • The top hundred or so series scores will be published on the series leaderboard, which will be updated after each race.
  • Series prizes will be awarded to those at the top of the series leaderboard, i.e. those with the highest series scores, after the final race of the series.
  • In the event of a tie at the top, head-to-head race results will be used to determine the series winner (i.e. who beat who in the races in which all the tied participants took part). If this is also tied (e.g. everyone beat each other once) then the combined times (only for these head-to-head races) will be used, with the person with the fastest cumulative time being the series champion.

 

How Series Scores Are Calculated

Overview

Race scores are converted into series points and series points from different races are added together for each person, to give their series score.

The Details

Series points are calculated by dividing your race score by the overall race winner’s score and multiplying by 1000 for one-day Questars races or 2000 for two-day Q2 races.

An example for a one-day Questars adventure race is shown below:                    

Race Position      Race Score          Series Points           How Calculated?

1st                          895 pts                1000 pts               (895/895)*1000

28th                        530 pts                  592 pts               (530/895)*1000                    

Calculating series points like this improves consistency throughout the series by minimising the impact of variable conditions between races which are beyond the course planner's control e.g. the weather.

Your top three one-day (or equivalent) Questars results will be added together to give your series score. Series points from Q2 two-day races will be split equally in two to form the equivalent of two one-day Questars results. An example is shown below:                    

Example          Race 1          Race 2                          Race 3          Series Score      How Calculated?

Name                     1-Day                  2-Day                                       1-Day                   After Race 3             Top 3 Scores

Person 1          750 pts         1600 pts (2 x 800 pts)     850 pts          2450 pts            (800+800+850)

Person 2          700 pts         1300 pts (2 x 650 pts)     750 pts          2100 pts            (700+650+750)

 

Information About Taking Part

  • Series points and hence a series score will automatically be calculated for every finisher in every race so you do not need to register or apply separately to take part in the series. The top hundred or so series scores at the present time will be included on the series leaderboard.
  • Series points are calculated per individual participant / team member. So if you change your team composition between races your series points are unaffected. Individuals in teams with the same team members throughout the series will gain the same series points and ranking on the series leaderboard.
  • You can take part in as many or as few races in the Questars series as you wish (you do not have to do three one-day Questars adventure races or equivalent) but only series points from your top three one-day Questars results or equivalent will count towards your final series score.
