Adventure Race

"If there is one place on earth reserved for Adventure Racing I believe that place is Fiordland, it is the frontier, a bastion of wilderness, 100% unadulterated adventure. It is intensely majestically scenic. It’s a place where the true adventurers play, and others are humbled. Every year GODZone was announced since it began I hoped with earnest it’d be Fiordland. Chapter 7 delivers in what will be the mother of all GODZone’s, the purest. Teams will be required to look after themselves, their individual needs and the needs of their team, pay close attention to the weather and even closer attention to the map, daylight will be worth gold, only a few teams will manage to achieve all these things and start to think about the race." - Nathan Fa'avae (Adventure Racing Legend)

Chapter 7 of GODZone is hosted by Fiordland and the wider Southland District with pre and post race activities focused around Te Anau.

Te Anau and Manapouri are the gateways to Fiordland National Park, 1.2 million hectares of dramatic and awe-inspiring forested mountains, fiords, coastline, rivers and lakes in the south west of the south island of New Zealand, featured in both Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit. It is part of Te Wahipounamu, a World Heritage Area, and was given this important United Nations status for its outstanding natural features. You can visit the UNESCO web page for more information about Fiordland and get more information from the official Fiordland Visitor Guide.

Fiordland National Park is the largest national park in New Zealand and is world famous for its much-visited fiords at Milford Sound and Doubtful Sound and its Great Walk tracks in the Milford, Routeburn and Kepler regions. It is also world famous for its indigenous birds, including the exceptionally rare takahe, and its incredible southern beech and podocarp forests, with some trees more than 800 years old. But Fiordland National Park is so much more. Whether you love tramping, kayaking, hunting, fishing, mountain running, or enjoying our amazing wilderness by boat, plane or helicopter or just by sitting and gazing at the wonderful views from a lake-front bench, this is a full-on natural paradise that suits everyone’s needs.
