The first event in 2018 Questars Adventure Race Series takes place on Saturday 24 March 2018 so put the date in your diary and keep it free!

Unfortunately our plans to hold this event in a new area have had to be postponed for a year as despite exploring lots of different options we have been unable to get the last piece of the jigsaw in place to use this area in 2018. We are therefore going to return to the wonderful Isle of Purbeck which is not an island as such, but a beautiful peninsula in Dorset bordered by water on three sides: Poole Harbour to the north and the English Channel to the south and east.

Take part in this adventure race and as well as some spectacular coastal scenery, you can look forward to some superb trail running and mountain biking along the Purbeck Hills around Corfe Castle - an 11th century fortification which commands a prominant gap in the ridgeline.

The third event in the 2018 Series sees a return of a one-day adventure race to the Wiltshire Downs for the first time in three years on Saturday 07 July 2018.

This is white horse country and the chalk hills into which these figures are etched are home to a network of bridleways and footpaths that are great for mountain biking and trail running respectively. Plus you can look forward to paddling along the peaceful waters of the Kennet & Avon canal if you so desire.

As always the course will different to previous Questars adventure races in the Wiltshire Downs, to provide a new challenge for everyone.

The fourth and final one-day adventure race in the 2018 Questars Adventure Race Series will take place on Saturday 1st September 2018 in the central part of the South Downs.

Following the popularity of the last adventure race to be held there, Questars will be returning to a tried and tested venue after a break of three years.

This area has everything for a great adventure race with some lovely kayaking on gentle tidal water and a vast network of bridleways for some great off road cycling giving plenty of route choice. There's also some excellent trail running over varied terrain which includes one or two hills (optional of course) for those that like the extra challenge and the views!

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).
