The Escape Raid



Date: 27-28 May, 2023
Location: Lake Moogerah, QLD
Team Size: Teams of 2 to 5 competitors
Categories: Mixed, Male and Female
Events: 3 Events – 1 Weekend


In partnership with the Scenic Rim Regional Council, Raid Adventures is excited to announce the return of the Escape Raid in 2023! 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 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. This race is just as much about the campfire as it is the competition.


Lake Moogerah Caravan Park, QLD.

The Lake Moogerah Campgrounds provide the perfect setting for a weekend of social rogaining. Situated on the shores of the Lake Moogerah, there is direct waterfront access, hot showers, campfire facilities and a camp kitchen for catering needs. Teams that enter the full event will have meals and camping included in their entry fee. Spectators and other visitors should contact organisers directly to book a spot.
