GODZone is an annual, multi-day, non-stop, expedition-style adventure race held in New Zealand. The event is the largest expedition-length adventure race in the world and widely regarded as the best. Chapter 9 – Rotorua is made up of two race categories, or sub events, running under the GODZone banner: – GZ Pure and GZ Pursuit. The GZ Pure and GZ Pursuit events run for 8 and a half days with ‘supported’ teams.

Teams will navigate, trek, mountain bike, kayak, canoe and raft over a vast array of different landscapes.
