An exciting new Rogaine format race joins the 2018 Calendar, with the introduction of the hugely successful Rogue Raid, formally known as the Rogue 24. Teams compete by collecting as many checkpoints as possible over a 24hr period (that’s right, all teams remain on the course for 24hrs).
The Rogue Raid involves 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.
However 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.
Race director Liam St Pierre is well known for his passion and attention to detail in creating races the have something for every level of competitor, making the Rogue Raid a must do in 2018. There is even a 6hr format available for first timers to get a taste for adventure racing.
This race will require plenty of strategy with route choices playing a big part in determining which teams find themselves on the podium. For the rest of the teams, an incredible 24hrs of adventure and exploring awaits at the beautiful Lake Samsonvale catchment.
