We want to challenge and to grow young people through a quality adventure race, that will inspire trust, teamwork and self-belief in an environment that embodies and promotes holistic growth and healthy competition. The twelve-hour event is designed to challenge competitors perseverance, teamwork and to stretch them both mentally and physically.
The 3 Hour Explorer is designed to be a fun introduction to Adventure Racing and can be achieved by any kid of any fitness, the focus is on fun and will have lots of stationary challenges. The 6 Hour Adventure event is more physically demanding than the 3 hour and provides a bridge into the 12 Hour Event and was developed as it was identified that the 12 hour was a bit daunting for many competitors.
All teams MUST be capable, confident and equipped at being away from any support crew for extended periods.
All three events will be held on the weekend commencing Friday 12th April 2019.
The 2019 GO-4-12 will be based from Guthrie Smith Education Centre 3561 SH 2, Tutira Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand
Tutira is in the Hastings District in Hawke’s Bay and the area offers the adventurous at heart so many options for adventures with beautiful and diverse landscapes. From the Event Base the TrackMe.Life GO-4-12 teams could find themselves visiting the incredible Karst landscape of the historically and culturally rich Opouahi. During the twelve hours, competitors could find themselves navigating through forests, walking coastal tracks or looking at Hawke’s Bay from atop landmarks such as the stunning Bell Rock. Equally possible is a journey into the Mohaka River Valley or a paddle across one or more of the picturesque lakes in the area.
It could be said that the Hastings District is an overlooked adventure playground that offers active people incredible tramping, kayaking, mountain Biking, rafting and so much more. But when the adventure is over the Hasting District also offers great places to visit, stay and eat and the food and hospitality are famously good.
