GODZone Adventure is New Zealand's only multi-day, non-stop, expedition-style adventure race. This annual event, run in March, hosts domestic and international teams from around the world. The 2018 event is hosted by Fiordland and the wider Southland District.
Mixed teams of four travel day and night with decisions to rest and sleep left solely to the discretion of the teams themselves. Teams navigate, trek, mountain bike, kayak over a vast array of different landscapes that test the mental and physical skills of participants to the ultimate limit.
The route is kept secret from teams until the day before the race. There are multiple route options for teams, meaning strategic decisions will be very important. Competitors change from one mode of transportation to another at designated transition areas.
The main disciplines for GODZone are navigation, trekking, mountain biking, kayaking and canoeing. The race may include additional disciplines that reflect the demands of the terrain.
