Yes, that’s 100 hours, not 100 km. The world’s first expedition-length, rogaine format adventure race will return in 2025! 100 hours of racing through 100 check points over a spectacular wilderness course with all of the navigational and strategic challenge that the Rogue Raid events are known for. The Raid 100 is a qualifying member of the Adventure 1 Series. Check out the live site from the 2022 race for an example of the race course.
The world’s first expedition-length, rogaine format adventure race will return for its third edition from 4-9 May, 2025. 100 hours of guaranteed racing over a spectacular wilderness course with all of the navigational and strategic challenge that the Rogue Raid events are known for. Each stage covers the core adventure racing disciplines of trekking, mountain biking, kayaking, packrafting and abseiling and must be completed in order, however all check points on any given stage are optional. As in any rogaine, each check point will be assigned it’s own score value with teams competing to collect the highest score possible. This format of racing rewards wise strategy and accurate navigation just as much as raw fitness. The course will be set to be an achievable journey for the majority of teams entered whilst pushing the nation’s top teams to their limits for 100 hours. It also makes for a social atmosphere of racing as all level of teams are crossing paths on the course (with some stages having opening and closing times) and finishing together at the same time.
Entries will open in late 2024. For more information about the race, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Entry fee includes:
- Duplicate sets of event-specific, water proof maps

- Qualification into the A1 Series

- 100 hours of guaranteed racing!
Volunteers play an integral role in an event of this scale going forward. The Rogue Raid has always been fortunate to receive massive support from volunteers, which can be just as rewarding as racing itself. There are multiple jobs we require volunteer assistance with over the week including race registrations, logistics with moving equipment, manning transition areas, search and rescue safety, course sweeping, photography, etc. Volunteering is also a great way to get access to teams out on the course.
