GO-4-12 Youth Adventure Race



We have had to make the decision, in consultation with School Sport New Zealand, to postpone the GO-4-12 Youth Adventure Race being held 17th-19th April 2020. In the interests of protecting our community and on the advice and direction from the government, we feel that this is the safest action at the moment.

We are proposing that we deliver the event on the new dates of 25th- 27th September 2020

In the meantime, please take care of yourselves and your family members
