What is our vision?

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.

When: 

All three events will be held on the weekend commencing Friday 12th April 2019. 

  • 3 and 6 hour events take place on Saturday 13th April
  • 12 hour event takes place on Friday 12th, Saturday 13th & Sunday 14th April 2019 (Saturday 13th being race day).

Where:

The 2019 GO-4-12 will be based from Guthrie Smith Education Centre 3561 SH 2, Tutira Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand
