Christchurch Adventure Park Showcase for GODZone & Wicked Rogaines
Friday 8th March 2019
Christchurch Wicked Rogaines organisers Nora Audra and Ian Edmond will this weekend celebrate their businesses 10th anniversary with a special Rogaine at the Christchurch Adventure Park as part of GODZone.
“This will be our 75th Rogaine with a 6 hour, 4 hour and 2 hour option plus a free kids fun event at the park,” says Audra.
“When the organisers of GODZone asked us to put something on to welcome the GODZone teams to the Christchurch Adventure Park we jumped at the opportunity to showcase what we do, and ensure local people had a reason to come along and be part of the day’s activities.”
As world class adventure racers in their own right, both Ian and Nora have been part of the GODZone organising team since the inaugural Chapter 1 was held in Milford Sound in 2012.
Edmond runs the GODZone ‘live tracking’ website and IT while Audra assists the management team in numerous roles.
“ It’s exciting to have GODZone coming to Christchurch and Canterbury this year for Chapter 8 and the Wicked Rogaine is a great way for locals to participate during the day or come to spectate,” says Audra. “Many people have pre-registered but you can also turn up on the day (Sunday March 10th) and register for the free kids event from 12noon and for the 2 hour event from 1pm from 12noon. There will be food and drinks available at the park and a great atmosphere watching the GODZone teams arriving late afternoon from a big day out racing.”
Christchurch Adventure Park General Manager Anne Newman says providing a base for both the Wicked Rogaine and the first stage of the international GODZone expedition event is what the park is built to do.
“We love events being held at the Christchurch Adventure Park and utilising what we have on offer for an adventurous day out. It’s awesome that both these events have come together to take advantage of our world class facility’s.”
“Everyone involved shares a common purpose to encourage people into the outdoors, healthy lifestyles and to experience the trails we have here. It’s going to be a fun Sunday of activity and adventure and we can’t wait to welcome everyone.”
For GODZone teams, the Christchurch Adventure Park will be only part of the first stage in their seven day adventure odyssey but for Wicked Rogaines it’s a fitting way to celebrate ten years of success.
“2018 was a huge year for us with more than 3800 people coming along to our Rogaine events,” says Audra. “ In 2019, we celebrate 10 years with some great Rogaine’s planned and look forward to seeing some of the almost 16,000 participants we have had – over the past decade – out there.”
