Team Rogue at Check Point 3, Day 2.

Team Rogue Podium at Expedition Alaska

If I had to sum up my experience at Expedition Alaska in a single word, it would be Raw.  Alaska is certainly a spectacular canvas for an adventure race with a vast expanse of trackless mountains, roaring rivers and wilderness terrain, all waiting to be explored.  All the pre-race information released by the event organizers […]

As usual, I was racing for the shirt.

Nudity Optional

GeoQuest is my favourite weekend of racing every year.  With the Expedition Alaska start line just around the corner, a lot of my energy has been put towards preparing the gear and travel for this race, and I didn’t have much time to focus on GeoQuest.  I knew I didn’t want to miss the race […]

The sun sets on another Rogue Adventure.

The Rogue Wrap Up for 2015

So the Rogue Adventuregaine is a wrap after another successful addition in 2015.  Setting records as the largest edition of the Rogue yet, 102 teams across the 8 hour and 24 hour took to the water-ways, trails and hills of the Somerset region in spectacular autumn weather.  Touted as one of the most strategic and […]

Urban Rogue Wrap Up

A classic Brisbane summer storm sweeping through the CBD last Friday evening wasn’t enough to deter over 150 competitors from taking on the Urban Rogue.  A 3hr metrogaine under the Friday night city lights, the Urban Rogue represents the last chance for rogainers to test their navigation and legs on the 2014 calendar.  It was […]

Dirty Diaper

I had a recent request from the organisers of the Diaper Creek rogaine to pull a race report together.  Given the quality of the area and course setting, along with the great event we had, the task certainly isn’t a chore. In fact, the only disappointment for the whole weekend was that I felt there […]

QLD 24Hr Rogaine Champs

Over the past few years of adventure racing, there have been a number of boxes I’ve been able to tick off: expedition races, stage races, ultras, travelling overseas to compete and competitive results in a few events.  However, one race format still left on the bucket list was a 24 hour rogaine (apart from a […]

2014 Godzone 69

2014 GodZone: Chapter 3

(Note, for those playing along at home, a full collection of photos can be found here, and maps here). In the lead up to GODZone Chapter 3, all the pre-event information was indicating a tough race ahead: more elevation, a longer course and more technical paddling.  Having toed the start line of all three editions […]

Team Rogue setting off on the first trek leg of GODZone in 2012.

A Nightmare of a Leg

In 2012, Darren, Deb, Craig and myself travelled to Queenstown for the highly anticipated return of expedition racing to New Zealand in the form of the GODZone Adventure Race.  We had expectations of doing well – the team had previously done close to a dozen expedtion races between us and had raced numerous times together in the past.

2013 X-Marathon 054

X-Marathon Lives Up To The Hype

Every year I like to fit an interstate race into the calendar.  In the past, this has generally been Max24, but with the Adventure Junkies organising a 24hr race during what is otherwise a relatively quiet time on the racing calendar, X-Marathon was to be it in 2013.  I’d heard a lot of good things […]

Darkside Report

It’s going to take a while for me to fully digest my experience from the 2013 Darkside race.  In the end we ran a close 4th place in the mixed (5th overall) being beaten out by Infinite and Tiger Adventure by 2 and 5 minutes respectively after over 12 hours of racing.  Ultimately the result […]
