The Rogue Raid is a race where teams compete to collect as many checkpoints as possible over a 24 hour time period. The Rogue involves multiple stages of the traditional adventure racing disciplines of trekking, mountain biking and kayaking where teams must navigate through the course using a map and compass on a route of their own choice. Each stage is effectively its own small rogaine where competitors may attempt to collect as many or as few checkpoints as they wish, making this event achievable by all levels of athlete. Strategy, precise navigation and perseverance will play just as a significant role as raw fitness. 2023 will represent the 14th year of the Rogue Raid which has grown to be one of Australia’s largest 24 hour adventure races.
Race HQ will be situated at the Spillway Common Day Use Area at Lake Wivenhoe. The race will visit some familiar areas as well as cover sections of terrain never used in adventure race before: teams will need to keep their navigational wits about them! There are no accommodation facilities at race HQ -Teams are advised to seek local accommodation in the area if travelling from the race.

Teams will be required to attempt multiple legs of alternating race disciplines. Each leg must be attempted in order, and once a leg is completed teams may not return to it to collect missed checkpoints later unless otherwise specified in the course notes. However, within each leg, teams may collect as many checkpoints in any order that they wish. All check points are optional. This format of event allows for a very social atmosphere of racing with teams constantly brought together. Each stage of the Rogue Raid is separated by a transition area where an event official will be present. Any team that makes it back to Race HQ under their own power will be considered ranked with an official result.
