For those that enjoy the outdoors and have conquered traditional running and triathlon events, there is a greater challenge that awaits. GODZone is more than an ordinary adventure race. It's the challenge of a lifetime, so get ready.
What is GODZone?
This race weeds out those that aren't dedicated to athletic excellence. It's an annual, expedition-style event that spans multiple days and is non-stop until racers reach the finish line. The course is located in New Zealand and spans varied terrains, testing one's ability to handle different elevations, temperatures and physical obstacles.
Running, biking and kayaking are among the activities you'll engage in to reach the finish line. Coastlines, mountains and flatlands are the backdrop to your adventure.
Although racers are part of a team, finishing GODZone is a personal challenge that gives racers a chance to show what they're made of. It's all about pushing boundaries and overcoming obstacles. It's all about nature as well. Racers get to experience some of the most beautiful landscapes on the planet. Training in the gym or running a marathon through a major city doesn't compare to the gauntlet of nature.
In addition to pushing one's physical limits, racing with a team is a chance to build bonds with highly talented athletes. Team members may experience friction on the course, but the satisfaction of completing a race together only brings people closer, once over the finish line. Participating also gives athletes serious bragging rights. Who but only the strongest competitors can even come close to finishing this race?
GODZone Chapter 10
The South Island of New Zealand will be the host location for this chapter of the amazing event. “End to end, side to side, coast to coast, A Southern Traverse or simply, a journey like no other. This course will take competitors through some of the most beautiful parts of the South Island and leave an indelible mark on their memories." according to Adam Fairmaid (Race Director).
The Pure, Prime and Pursuit races take place from 3 and 12 March 2022. However, there are a number of milestones leading up to the event, including entries, newsletters and registration.
This epic adventure race that tops all others is embodied in Chapter 10, and racers can expect the very best in nature, competition and teamwork.
If racers find themselves unable to make it through the course, there is no shame. It is a daunting challenge. Teams can continue on, but team members may be replaced. Also, it's advisable to try the race again. Winning is oftentimes a matter of practice and not giving up.
Do not go through life without living an adventure. Get a team together or join an existing crew and sign up for the adventure of a lifetime, GODZone. You'll have memories of conquering nature that you can carry with you for the rest of your life.
