As we cast our eye towards 2022, there are some big plans bubbling in the works for Raid Adventures’ series of races. It’s time to pull out your calendar and lock in some dates for your next big race challenge.
The Raid 100
The Raid 100 is set to make its return from 1-7 May, 2022. The worlds only expedition length, rogaine format adventure race will visit the Clarence Valley region of northern NSW with a race tagline of the “Northern Rivers Edition”. With 164 athletes entered from all over Australia and as far away as Japan and NZ, it’s going to be the most competitive Raid race ever.
For those that missed it, a major race update has been provided here. This is a must read for anyone doing the race with plenty of clues from the course including the number of stages and expected length of each discipline. If you are thinking of making the step up to the Raid 100, get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more. With 8 stages of kayaking, mountain biking, trekking, packrafting and abseiling this will be the most spectacular Raid race to date.
The Urban Rogue
With just over a week to go, now is your last chance to get your entry in for the Urban Rogue. Set for Friday 3 December, 2021, the Urban Rogue is the unofficial break-up for the Queensland adventure racing and rogaining calendar. With an all new map, this race is the perfect stepping stone into racing for novice competitors, whilst still pushing those fleet of foot to their limits. Three hours of navigating the steamy Brisbane streets by the Friday night lights: what more could you ask for!
The Wildfire and Mojo Raid
Race dates and locations have been set for both the Wildfire Raid and Mojo Raid next year. The Wildfire Raid will run on Saturday 25 June, 2022 with Donnybrook announced as the preliminary location. With an intricate network of neighbouring forestry trails and it’s bayside location, Donnybrook serves as the perfect venue for the Raid adventure racing rogaine format.
The Mojo Raid will return on the weekend of 3 September, 2022. We can’t reveal the location just yet, but we can say that is an all new area never explored in an adventure race before and we’re pretty excited about the racing potential. Entries for both races will open early in 2022.
Team Rogue Racing
With covid interruptions throughout 2021, it wasn’t quite the big year of racing the Rogue team had planned. However, the team was lucky enough to toe the start line at XPD back in July, finishing a respectable fourth place. You can read about the team’s race here, or for the more visually inclined catch up on the team’s race video below.
Next up for the team is the final Adventure 1 race of the season – the 36 hour Wildside Adventure race. The team is returning with the aim of defending their title after winning the last two editions held in 2018 and 2019, whilst looking to secure their position on the podium of the Australian national adventure racing series.
With races that cater to all levels of competitors, now is the time to get cracking your plans for adventure in 2022.
See you on the trails,
