RACE DESCRIPTIONS

Raid Adventures is excited to announce a move to spring for the third edition of the Escape Raid in 2024! Three races – three different disciplines – one fantastic weekend. Do one or do them all, the Escape Raid is designed to be a family friendly weekend of trekking, mountain biking, kayaking, navigating and camping.  Adopting a general rogaine format, each event has it’s own unique twist requiring some head scratching strategic planning. The Escape Raid is achievable by novices whilst still challenging the most hardened adventure athletes as they all navigate an unmarked course with map and compass. This race is just as much about the campfire as it is the competition.

RACE HQ

Captain Logans Camp, Lake Wivenhoe, QLD.

The Captain Logan’s Camp Recreation Area is the perfect venue to host the Escape Raid. There is unlimited paddling opportunities, excellent off-trail navigation for the trek stage and a diverse trail network for cycling in the adjoining the area all just an hour from Brisbane. All three stages will be run from the same HQ location and lake side camping is included in the entry fee. The campgrounds include toilets, hot showers, drinking water, some shelter and power along with direct lake access. Friends and family are welcome to join the event through our spectator camping and meal package.
