The World's biggest expedition adventure race hosted in New Zealand - the home of Adventure Racing. Up to 10 days of racing across the South Island of NZ. 

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. 

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 route traverses a distance of up to 750km the fastest team will normally reach the finish line in about 5 days. Other teams will be allowed as many as 10 days to reach the finish.
