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.  2023 will represent the 14th year of the Rogue Raid which has grown to be Australia’s largest 24 hour adventure race in terms of competitor numbers.

Race HQ

Preliminary plans is to host the 2023 Rogue Raid from Wivenhoe Dam. Expect some all new locations for this course to visit though!

Preliminary Schedule

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.  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.

Entries

Entries will open in early 2023.
