About

The Rogue Raid is a race where teams of two compete to collect as many checkpoints as possible over a 24 hour (or 6 hour) time period. The Rogue involves multiple stages of the traditional adventure racing disciplines of trekking, mountain biking and kayaking where teams must navigate through the course using a map and compass on a route of their own choice. Each stage is effectively its own small rogaine where competitors may attempt to collect as many or as few checkpoints as they wish, making this event achievable by all levels of athlete. Strategy, precise navigation and perseverance will play just as a significant role as raw fitness.  2018 will represent the ninth running of the Rogue Raid which has grown to be Australia’s largest 24 hour adventure race in terms of competitor numbers.

Format

Teams will be required to attempt multiple legs of alternating race disciplines.  Each leg must be attempted in order, and once a leg is completed teams may not return to it to collect missed checkpoints later unless otherwise specified in the course notes.  However, within each leg, teams may collect as many checkpoints in any order that they wish.  All check points are optional.  Note that teams may only collect checkpoints that are from the current leg that they are on.  Note also that some stages of the race may have “opening” or “closing” times.

This format of event allows for a very social atmosphere of racing with teams constantly brought together.  Each stage of the Rogue Raid is separated by a transition area where an event official will be present.  Any team that makes it back to Race HQ under their own power will be considered ranked with an official result.

Adventure 1 Series

The Rogue Raid is a member of the Australia’s national adventure racing series, Adventure 1. Teams will be racing for not only a place in the ranks of the Australian Adventure Racing pecking order but also for a free entry to the GODZone expedition race.  Note that only teams of 4 competitors in the 24 hour Rogue Raid are eligible for the Adventure 1 series points and prizes.  However, racers competing in a team of 2 in the 24 hour will still be eligible for the Adventure 1 Grand Slam Club.
