Moreton Bay Council Supporting the Rogue Raid

The hottest ticket in Australian adventure racing is open from sale on Friday, 8 December.

The ninth edition of the Rogue Raid 24-hour adventure race will be held from the shores of Lake Samsonvale, between May 5 and 6, taking in the challenging bush trails and waterways of the local region. Competitors will negotiate a course of their own choosing using the disciplines of mountain biking, kayaking and hiking.

Teams of two to four racers will compete to collect as many check points as possible in 24 hours, navigating an unmarked course with just a map and compass.

Spokesperson for Parks, Recreation and Sport and Division 11 Councillor, Darren Grimwade, said he was pumped Rogue Adventure was riding its way to the Moreton Bay Region to host its ninth Rogue Raid 24-hour adventure race.

“With a line-up of 150 competitors, including international participants, officials and up to 260 spectators and short course participants expected to attend, the 24-hour adventure race is sure to include plenty of thrills and spills,” Cr Grimwade said.

“I know our community will join me in welcoming Rogue Adventure to Moreton Bay for what I expect will be a fantastic, action-packed weekend.

“Lake Samsonvale is a spectacular location featuring a scenic picnic location, BBQs, seating areas, and plenty of opportunities for outdoor adventure. I encourage you to get out and enjoy this beautiful part of the world.”

“Be sure to make the most of the weekend and enjoy all that our region has to offer in your spare time – from the bush to the beach; whether that’s relaxing on Lake Samsonvale or taking a drive to stunning Bribie Island and Redcliffe or heading to the tranquil Hinterland towns of nearby Dayboro, Samford or Woodford, there is just so much to see in the Moreton Bay Region.”

The Rogue Raid has grown in popularity to the point where it is now the largest 24-hour adventure race in Australia.

If the challenge of multisport navigation sounds like your cup of tea, but you aren’t ready to take the leap into a 24-hour event, there is also a six-hour course option open to 100 competitors which has also proven a popular event in the past.

The Rogue Raid event is proudly sponsored by Moreton Bay Regional Council and set to run from 5 – 6 May 2018.
