Urban Rogue Final Instructions

Urban Rogue Logo2

A PDF version of this information for easy printing can be dowloaded here: Urban Rogue Final Instructions.  Thank you for your entry into the Urban Rogue – a 3 hour metrogaine taking in the Brisbane city Friday night lights on a summer evening.  Below is all the information required for competitors about the event.  Make sure to have a good read over it so that everything can run smoothly on the night: timings will be tight.

Included with this information is a copy of the briefing notes that I will be giving prior to the race start here: Urban Rogue Final Briefing Notes.  With only a 40 minute map mark up time, I know things can be hectic prior to the start of the race and many people will only listen with one ear.  Hence, have a read over it now to familiarize yourself with the race rules and peculiarities of the event.

Teams can also bring a signed indemnity form to streamline the process on the night.  This can be downloaded here: Urban Rogue Indemnity Form

It looks like clear skies are predicted, so no summer storms unfortunately – the weather forecast for Friday is sunny, but I would still bring a head lamp.  Look forward to seeing you at the Urban Rogue!



Race head quarters will be at the shelter shed in Victoria Park off Gilchrist Avenue, Herston.  There is ample on street parking available, as well as parking up the road at the Kings Car Park.  Please be aware that the parking is metered until 7pm, so you will need change for a ticket for approximately an hours worth of parking.  There are toilets a hundred meters up the road.  There is no power and very limited shelter available, so if it looks like there is a summer storm predicted, please make provisions for this in your planning.

The Urban Rogue is a 3 hour metrogaine using a traditional rogaining score format.  However, in place of flags and punches, a question and multiple choice answer format will be employed.  Teams must locate the feature described and select the correct answer from a choice of four options.  There are heavy penalties for guessing or incorrect answers (to the original value of the incorrect check point).  Places will be awarded based firstly on total score, then on finish time in the event of a tied score.  Note, a penalty of 10 points per minute, or part thereof, applies to teams arriving back late.  Teams returning more than 30 minutes late will be disqualified.


A number of prizes have been generously donated by event sponsors Wildfire Sports.  Make sure to check them out online for any of your outdoor apparel and equipment needs.  Prizes will be awarded to the first placed Mens, Womens and Mixed teams in the “on foot” category.  Prizes will also be awarded to the wining “On Wheels” team, Novice team and team containing a Junior (U15).  Remaining prizes will be distributed as spot prizes, so make sure to stick around for presentations.
