Questars Trio races have three stages – trail running, mountain biking and kayaking. Within each stage there are a range of checkpoints to visit. Each checkpoint has a value and the winners are those that have accumulated the most points within the time limit. The race is continuous. Transition between stages is all part of the race. Teams choose in which order to do each stage.
The courses are set to provide a great deal of route choice and to cover the best parts of the event area. Many teams reach 50-75% of the checkpoints. Only the strongest teams will cover all the checkpoints in any stage and in so doing cover distances of about 20-30 km trail running, 30-40 km mountain biking and 6-8 km of kayaking.
