About

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.  2020 will represent the eleventh year of the Rogue Raid which has grown to be Australia’s largest 24 hour adventure race in terms of competitor numbers.

Race HQ

Race HQ will be situated at the Bayside Wakepark on the shores of the Logan River. The address is 80 Ferry Rd, Carbrook, QLD.  Pre- and Post-race camping is also available on site. Refer to the Rogue Raid Course Document linked above for more details.

Format

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.  Note that teams may only collect checkpoints that are from the current leg that they are on.  Note also that some stages of the race may have “opening” or “closing” times.

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.
