About

In partnership with the greater Escape in the Scenic Rim Festival, Raid Adventures is excited to announce the newest event in it’s line up: The Escape Raid.  Three races – three different disciplines. Do one or do them all, the Escape Raid is designed to be a family friendly weekend of trekking, mountain biking, kayaking and camping in the Scenic Rim.  Adopting a rogaine format, teams compete to collect as many check points as they like in a set time period while navigating an unmarked course with map and compass. The Escape Raid is achievable by novices whilst still challenging the most hardened adventure athletes.

Race HQ Venue

The Overflow Estate Winery, Wyaralong, QLD.
