2020 Racing Wrap (and 2021 Sneak Peek)

There were times this year I didn’t think I would even really have an opportunity to write a yearly race wrap up.  Looking back to the start of 2020, we had lofty goals of a big race calendar planned with some fantastic events lined up.  I recall being pretty excited because it was a super […]

Giraween Rogaine Report

It’s not often that I get down to writing a race report for a foot rogaine, the last ones being the Diaper Creek Rogaine and 24 Hour Rogaine champs way back in 2014. A big part of the reason for this is that’s been almost 2.5 years since I’ve done a pure bush foot rogaine! […]

Back-to-Back Wins at Wildside

As one of only a couple of teams to race every event in the Mountain Designs Adventure1 series this year, it had already been a big season for team Rogue.  However, with how the points system was shaping up, there was still plenty to race for at the Wildside 36 hour race: while the Alpine […]

Dealing With a DNF

This has been a hard race report to write, for the obvious reason that the net result of our foray into Alpine Quest in 2019 was a DNF. The team entered the race with high hopes for a good start to the Adventure 1 series and instead we are left ruing a missed opportunity. Personally, […]

2018 Wildside Banner

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 […]

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 […]

UTA100 View From the Pointy End

Past Rogue Adventure team mate Justin Whitley joined myself and a motley crew of other Brioche trail runners from Brisbane for an assault on the UTA100 course.  Below is his race report from his unique view towards the front of the field, finishing an incredible 16th place in a field of over 1300 runners in […]

GeoQuest Report

Just a quick update back from GeoQuest.  If there were any doubts that this race is the premier AR on the Australian calendar, they were resoundingly quashed with the 2016 event.  Geocentric Outdoors have their event organisation dialed to a tee.  Two sets of maps, new control flags that reflected in the dark, a genuine […]
