Want to follow your favourite team? Here’s a quick guide on how to use our live tracking website.

Go to: www.godzoneadventure.com/live/tracking

The t-shirt symbols

You’ll see 71 numbered t-shirts, each shirt represents a team, orange for Pure and teal for Pursuit. You can hover over the t-shirts to get the team name and the last time their tracker updated. Click on the t-shirt for more information on the team. If the teams are grouped close together, you’ll need to click on the group to separate them.

How to find a team

If you want to find a team, click on the top left button titled ‘Teams’. There you will see all the teams listed alphabetically, click on your team and the map will automatically take you to their location. You may have to zoom in for it to be most effective. You can click the button ‘Teams’ again to remove the table from view.

How to create favourites

Keep track of your top three teams. Click on the top left button titled ‘Teams’, under the list of team names there are three boxes called ‘Favourites’. Choose up to three teams to follow, and a yellow star will appear on their T Shirt symbol so you spot them more easily. You can click the button ‘Teams’ again to remove the table from view.

How to follow the route a team has taken

Find out where a team has been. Click on the top left button titled ‘Teams’, at the top of the teams list you’ll see six options, titled ‘Show Teams’ and ‘Sort By Name’ etc. Click on ‘Show Team Tails’, and each team’s route will appear as a coloured line. You can click the button ‘Teams’ again to remove the table from view.

As well as being able to tell what route each team has taken, you can rewind the race and see exactly what time each team reached a part of the course. Simply click on the white circle on the top white bar and move it backwards, press play or fast forward, and watch the teams’ progress in full.

How to find out when a team slept

To figure out when a team rested for longer than an hour, follow the above instructions on how to follow a team’s route. Once you have each team’s route visible, click again on the top left button titled ‘Teams’. Next to each team name is a T Shirt symbol and three grey boxes. Tick the grey box with the battery symbol above it and a battery symbol will appear along the team’s route where they rested for longer than an hour.
