Destination Fiordland and the Southland District Council are the official host partners of GODZone Chapter 7. Race Director Warren Bates says the support is critical to the event’s success.

“ Southland District Mayor Gary Tong and Southland District Councilor Ebel Kremer have been instrumental in bringing the event to the region and together with Destination Fiordland they are offering a once in a lifetime opportunity for adventure teams to experience.”

Southland District Mayor Gary Tong is thrilled that GODZone is coming to Southland.

“This is huge for our district as the event will bring people and publicity to Southland, which is always good. Our residents are rightly so proud of Southland, our beautiful scenery and our welcoming people and so those visiting as part of GODZone will be blown away by all that we offer,” says Mayor Tong.

Southland District Councilor Ebel Kremer of Te Anau says a lot of work had been carried out behind the scenes to win GODZone that will bring benefits to the province.

“The wide open spaces, our farms, forests and attractions including the little towns with all their history will provide competitors and visitors a real chance to explore, “says Kremer.
