SEQ Bulletin – April 2019

The Stone’s Throw Hike/Bike Rogaine – Saturday 25 May – Entries Now Open

Only a stone’s throw from Brisbane! Set in the beautiful Glass House Mountains, where one really should not throw stones 🙂

This year the 8hr rogaine will be a combined foot and bike rogaine, you will navigate between checkpoints using a mix of both.

Camping is included in your event fee, and there is a Mountain Bike Orienteering event nearby on the following day (26 May) so you can enter that too and make it a full weekend of fun.

For further information and entry in both the 8hr rogaine on the Saturday and the MTBO event on the Sunday please visit the event page.

Mini Rogaine and Training Day Washup
The mini rogaine and training day were held at Bunyaville and there was a great turnout at both events. We hope everyone had fun! Check out the results here.

MOJO Winter Raid
New to the sport? Here’s a Toowoomba based beginner friendly event to get you started in the sports of adventure racing and rogaining! This is a walk/run event only. Entries here.

Volunteers Needed for the 12 hour and 24 hour Events
We still need to fill roles in the organising teams for these events later in the year. If you have been competing for a while but haven’t yet volunteered, now is a great time to jump in. If we can’t get enough volunteers lined up to fill roles in these events, we may have cancellations which would be a big disappointment.
The Rogaining Queensland Event Calendar for 2019 is available at The volunteer page on the website has a description of each of the event volunteer roles. Please send an email to to put your hand up. It’s a lot of fun, you learn heaps about rogaining and we have many experienced hands to support you. 

NAMSF Sponsorship
QRA is pleased to announce that Andrew Banks and Mitchell Quinn are the recipients of this year’s sponsorship from the NAMSF (see info from last year’s event here). They will represent the University of Queensland in the Australian Intervarsity Rogaining Championships to be held near the ACT in May. Congratulations Andrew and Mitchell, and good luck in the event!
