The Rivette QUESTars Adventure Race Series

Mon 23rd Nov 2020 | New Website Coming This Week

Towards the end of this week, we shall be switching over to a brand new Questars adventure race website that a team of experts have built from scratch and been putting together for us over the last six months.

You don't need us to tell you that this (our soon-to-be old) website is showing its age and things have moved on a lot since it was first created. Rather than keep adding "sticking plasters" to this website to make it work, we decided earlier this year (in lockdown #1) that the time had come to bite the bullet and start again with a brand new website using the latest technology.

There is still a lot of content to be added to the new website and this will continue to be done over the coming weeks and months (i.e. after the switchover). But the foundations and building blocks of the new website are all in place, so we've decided to do the switchover this week in preparation for the launch of the 2021 Questars events at the beginning of December.

Unfortunately, it won't be possible to add all the past race photos to the new website due to their sheer size and number. So you might want to have one last look and save personal copies of any previous race photos that you want to keep before they disappear (if you haven't already done so).

Wed 2nd Sep 2020 | Coronavirus: Wiltshire Downs Race Update

Planning for a Socially Distanced Event

It is very likely that if the Wiltshire Downs adventure race is to go ahead next month as it is currently scheduled to do so then social distancing measures will need to be implemented and adhered to.

This means making changes to the event to spread participants out where they would normally come together (at the start and finish, and before and after the race for example). If you are entered into this event we want to know what you think about our suggested proposal for a socially distanced event. Read on to find out more...
