GODZone 2015 NZ

GODZone is a 500km multi-day, non-stop, expedition-style adventure race like no other. Teams consist of a mixed format, 4 people containing at least one female. Disciplines are unknown and the location is different every year, testing the mental and physical skill of the participants. Teams have to navigate, trek, mountain bike, kayak and canoe, traversing over a vast array of different terrain, through some of New Zealand’s most stunning landscapes. GodZone is held between the months of February and March. Each year of the GodZone has been named a chapter, begining it’s journey in the previous 3 chapters from Milford Sound, Mount Cook and Kaikoura. Chapter 4 is the next series of the Godzone and will be held in the mountain town of Lake Wanaka, in the South Island of NZ.
