Take a Run on the Wildside

As a self-confessed AR tragic, it’s amazing that it has taken me five editions of Wildside to finally make it down to this event.  The Wildside format has jumped from anywhere between a 24 hour race to an expedition race.  This year’s race finally settled on a 50 hour version and doubled as the final […]

Rogue Hells Bells 01

Full Circle at Hells Bells

Hells Bells in 2007 was my first taste of 24 hour adventure racing. I’d still rate it as one of the harder 24 hour courses I’ve done and have since raced 9 Hells Bells in a row.  Unfortunately, I had missed the last two years due to injury, so this year’s race was to be […]

The Hells Bells A1 Competition

Three races down, two to go in the Adventure 1 series and it’s a wide open affair with everything to play for.  Quite a contrast from the inaugural season in 2017 when team Thunderbolt wrapped up the series with a clean sweep. All the big players are back to duke it out again at Hells […]

Team #2 CBRAR Rogue

GODZone Fiordlands with CBRAR

So it’s taken me a while to decompress and digest the experience that was GODZone Fiordlands.  This was my fourth attempt at the race, with my first attempt being the original edition of GODZone that started from the edge of Fiordland National Park in Milford Sound in 2012. That race smashed me and taught me […]

The first bike control

2017 Mojo Raid

Despite having spent close to a decade organising rogaine format adventure racers, opportunities to race them myself have been few and far between.  In fact, the recent Mojo Raid represents only my second time as a competitor, the first being the Mojo event last year.  Taking on a leadership role in the Raid Adventures series […]

Rogue Adventure State of Play

As anyone who has been stuck in a confined space with me for any period of time could attest, I’m an adventure racing tragic – someone not short of opinions and ideas on the sport.  I love every element about racing whether it be competing, tracking races or organising them myself.  I’ve filled my life […]

An AR bike box in action.

A Bike Box Build

One of the small innovations introduced by Geocentric Outdoors when they took over management of the Adventure Racing World Series was to standardise the mandatory equipment list across all constituent races.  One gear item that is normally regulated across races are competitor’s bike boxes, requiring them to be of a size typically transported by an airline carrier: 140cm […]
