GZ Pure is the ultimate expedition adventure racing experience. The event is based on the highly successful format of the previous five Chapters of GODZone with unsupported teams travelling approximately 500km across New Zealand's wilderness for up to seven days. The GZ Pure event represents the most technically challenging adventure race in the World and teams should prepare accordingly. As with previous Chapters of GODZone, teams have limited time to prepare their maps and strategy. Route choice and difficult navigation, along with a whole host of other skills, are critical for success. For those teams who do not make it through the Full Course, a shorter route will expedite them to the finish.
GZ Pursuit, in it's second year of running, takes the existing GODZone concept and makes some subtle changes to create an exciting new racing experience and open the door to a wider range of expedition adventure racers. If you've been wondering whether you have what it takes to step up from a 24hr race to GODZone, then this is the event for you. If you want to involve your partner in a support crew role then this is the event for you. If you are unsure of your navigation prowess or would rather fizz through a slightly shorter course then this is the event for you. For some in New Zealand, this event will have a flavour of races of old, with the addition of support crews and a slightly more social feel (in the Transition Areas at least). However, GZ Pursuit retains all the best features of GODZone and is an immense challenge for all.
