Just one of them team, Graeme Ewenson, has done GODZone before on the Pure course.

None of his fellow teammates – Brendan Hickman, Anthony Oswald and David Howard – have done an expedition adventure race before but have all completed 24 hour races.

David said: “We just want to complete the course and complete our own personal Everest.”
