The Rogue Raid heads to Moreton Bay

Over 200 competitors set to take on a challenging and spectacular course

In a little over two weeks, competitors from across Australia and New Zealand will descend upon the sleepy village of Donnybrook for the fifteenth edition of the Rogue Raid race.  One of Australia’s longest running and premier adventure races, the Rogue Raid is a 24 hour event where teams of two to four competitors navigate an unmarked wilderness course via a series of stages of mountain biking, kayaking and hiking. Every one of the 86 hidden checkpoints must be navigated to with map and compass alone with no digital aids allowed, with the course only revealed to competitors on the morning of the race.

The Moreton Bay location selected for this year’s edition of the race is a scenic gem, from the deserted stretches of beach along Bribie Island, kayaking through the tidal channels of Pumicestone Passage through to hiking and riding around the imposing Glasshouse Mountains.

The coastal location offers up a slightly flatter course compared to past editions of the race previously held in the hinterland, making it a very novice friendly edition for those competitors looking to do their first 24 hour adventure race. In saying that, there will be plenty of strategic challenge for the elite teams as they plot a course to collect as many check points as possible in the 24 hour time period, with the winning team expected to cover over 200km of wilderness travel.

It will be a highly competitive battle up front of the race this year with some of Australia’s top adventure racers in attendance, including local favourites and defending champions, the Alpine Avengers. They will have their work cut out for them though, with arguably one of the best teams in the country, Thought Sports, travelling from Victoria for the race, not to mention a number of other strong teams from the east coast of Australia and New Zealand n attendance.  The winning team takes home a free qualifying entry to the Asia World Cup to be held in Malaysia later this year.

The Rogue Raid has again received outstanding support from the City of Moreton Bay.  Be sure to check out the local accommodation options here:

“After hosting a number of smaller events in the Moreton Bay region over the past couple of years, we’re excited to bring our premier adventure race, the Rogue Raid, to the region” said course director Liam St Pierre.  “The Pumicestone Passage offers up some beautiful waterways to kayak on with plenty of strategic course setting options amongst the various tidal channels and small islands.  Teams don’t need to travel too far either to find themselves in some great bushland for mountain biking and trekking, with the stunning Glasshouse Mountains as a backdrop.  I can’t wait to reveal this year’s course to teams”.

Racing kicks off at 10:00am on the morning of Saturday 4 May with full details including live tracking available at
