Just a quick note from the team to update you on what’s been happening with the Raid Adventures Series.
The Urban Raid
Entries are now open. Join over 200 other racers for your final dash of 2017 in the hunt for check points through the Friday night lights of the city. Full details including the online entry can be found in the link below.
The Rogue Raid
The most important date you need to know: 7:30pm on Friday 8 December 2017. This is when entries will open for the Rogue Raid. Entering it’s ninth year, the race has grown in popularity to the point where it sold out in 10 minutes this year. We have expanded capacity by 20% to cater for the possible increase in demand related to the race joining the Adventure1 series, however you will want to be quick with the entry button if you intend to race. QRA volunteers and international / special interest teams are guaranteed an entry if nominated and paid for prior to this date (contact rogueadventureracing@
The Mojo Raid and Frontier Raid
Planning has begun for both of these events and we are set for an all new adventure race location for each with some exciting racing. Details will be rolled out on the Raid Adventures website as they come to hand.
The Colts Programs
In an exciting development for the future of Australian Adventure Racing, the Raid Series have a number of programs specifically targeting youth development in the sport. Details will be released shortly once permits and grants are secured, but I can let interested parties on one hint – the first Colts Academy session will take in the trails, lake and facilities of Enoggera Reservoir, Brisbane. For more experienced competitors, keep on eye on our Mentor Program.

Team Rogue To Race Adventure 1 in 2018
Australia’s very own national race series came to a wrap last weekend with team Thunderbolt taking out the Adventure1 Aussie title convincingly. Expect an even bigger and better year in 2018 as the series grows in strength. I’m excited to announce that not only will the Rogue Raid be a race series member, but Rogue Adventure will be entering a team in the series to mix it with the country’s best, beginning with X-Marathon in January 2018. Keep up to date with news from the team at the Rogue Adventure blog.
Thanks to the support of some dedicated members of the Queensland Rogaine Association, I’m very happy to announce that as race director of the Rogue Raid, I’ve been nominated as a finalist for the Queensland Outdoor Recreation Federation (QORF) Award for Outstanding Achievement (Individual), while the Mojo Raid has been nominated for the Outdoor Event Award. Not only that, the QLD Rogaine Association is a finalist for the Outstanding Achievement (Organisation) Award. Final results will be announced at the QORF Award ceremony at the end of October – thanks to all those involved in getting the nominations up, in particular Linda Thompson and Paul Guard.
It’s been an exciting year for the Raid Adventures series of races. I hope to see it off with you at the Urban Raid and can’t wait for a massive 2018 to roll around.
