ABOUT CURE KIDS

We are absolutely delighted and proud to announce that leading New Zealand child health research funder, Cure Kids, has been named as the recipient charity of GODZone. As our event continues to grow and thrive we have been considering for some time how we can use our strong domestic and international platform for the greater good. By choosing Cure Kids as our official charity recipient we aim to help raise funds and awareness of the vital child health research they fund each year.

Our alignment with Cure Kids is something that hopefully will inspire our adventure racing community to rally behind and help raise funds for this important research. We will be actively encouraging teams and their family, friends and supporters to get behind our recipient charity and spread the word about the great work they are doing. Cure Kids funds research into cures and better treatments for a wide range of childhood illnesses. These include cot death (SUDI), stillbirth, leukaemia, rheumatic heart disease, asthma, inherited heart conditions and mental health conditions.

You, the competitors, face some tough challenges out in the wilderness and inspire tens of thousands of viewers watching your stoic progress on the Live Coverage site. However, this is nothing compared to the challenges some children and their families face on a day-to-day basis. We hope that by choosing Cure Kids as our recipient charity that you will be inspired to make a difference and also put your own race induced suffering into some kind of perspective.

Jackson Howes - Cure Kids Ambassador

Jackson lives with an inoperable brain tumour. Brain tumours are the second most common cancer in young people after leukaemia. Cure Kids is funding research which aims to identify new ways of preventing brain tumours in children. READ MORE >

One of the most anticipated parts of GODZone is the announcement of the new host venue. We always try our best to keep the new race location secret until we open the event website, traditionally on the 1st of June. This allows teams a month to digest all the key bits of information before entries open to all on the 1st of July. As an event organisation one of our founding principals is to ensure that GODZone is as competitor focused as possible. As far as host venues are concerned, this means we are always looking for places in New Zealand which will offer up the ultimate in adventure racing experiences and unique terrain.

Watch out for a very special announcement about the new exciting location soon. Key dates for your diary are set out below. We anticipate a very strong demand for places (which will be strictly  limited this year) at Chapter 5 so be sure to get organised as soon as you can. We look forward to seeing you soon at the Adventure Like No Other.

KEY DATES FOR CHAPTER 5

- HOST LOCATION ANNOUNCED & WEBSITE LAUNCHED 1st JUNE 2015

- ENTRIES OPEN 1st JULY 2015

- RACE DATE MARCH 2016
