NZ Secondary Schools Adventure Racing Champs

Hawke's Bay

13th April – 15th April 2018


The 2018 GO-4-12 New Zealand Secondary Schools Adventure Racing Champs will be held on 13th April - 15th April 2018 in Hawkes Bay, North Island, New Zealand. 


The GO-4-12 Youth Adventure Race is The Official New Zealand Secondary School Adventure Racing Championships and the New Zealand Youth Adventure Challenge. Competitors will complete a course involving up to 10 different adventure activities for 12 hours nonstop.

The race is coordinated on behalf of the New Zealand Secondary Schools Sports Council and Multisport NZ by David Tait, who created the event in 2006. It is an authentic adventure race with the core disciplines consisting of mountain biking, walking/running, kayaking, rope skills and navigation.
The teams of four will face both physical and mental challenges while covering a picturesque course designed by experienced adventure racers.

The 2018 event is limited to 40 NZSSARC teams and 10 GO-4-12 teams. This makes it the largest event of its kind in New Zealand if not the world. This is truly an event that is fast growing to be one of the most significant youth sports events in New Zealand.
