About

The Urban Rogue is set to return, now in its eighth year: a 3 hour metrogaine in the heart of the Brisbane CBD! Come experience the city Friday night lights, where you and up to four other team mates will navigate to collect as many check points as possible in a 3 hour time limit. Set at a time to capitalise on the cooler summer evening temperatures, this course is achievable by all levels of athlete. Whether you’re out for a casual stroll with the family or one of the city’s elite runners, you chose as much or as little of the course that you want to do. Only basic navigational skills are required.

HQ Venue

The race will return to the Lang Park PCYC at 40 Castlemaine St, Milton. Free undercover parking is available for competitors in the PCYC car park off Castlemaine St. Both Milton and Roma St stations are within close proximity for those catching a train.

Equipment

Teams will be required to bring a torch or headlamp to read the map and a couple of marker pens to record their answers to the CPs. They will also need a digital camera or a phone capable of taking photos for a special check point and enter their results. A compass and water bottle are also strongly recommended.
