The 2016 GO-4-12 New Zealand Secondary Schools Adventure Racing Champs will be held on 8-10th April 2016 in the stunning Kaiteriteri Tasman District of the South Island.

The event is suitable for all adventurous youth and orienteers love this event with it being won many times over by those good with a map.

The GO-4-12 Youth Adventure Race is separated into two events being held simultaneously:

  • The Official New Zealand Secondary School Adventure Racing Championships – open for teams from the same school (as per the NZSSSC Sanctioning Rules).
  • The New Zealand Youth Adventure Challenge –   open for any youth of high school age.

Competitors will complete a mystery course involving up to 10 different adventure activities for 12 hours nonstop.  It is an authentic adventure race with the core disciplines consisting of mountain biking, walking/running, kayaking, rope skills and navigation.

The teams of four will face both physical and mental challenges while covering a picturesque course designed by experienced adventure racers.

The event is in it’s 11th Year. Check out sportzhub.com article on the event: SPORTZHUB – NZ Secondary Schools Adventure Racing Championships – Tasman District

The extraordinary nature of the event will attract many teams to participate in the 2016 event (Limited to 50 NZSSARC teams and 20 GO-4-12 teams). This makes it the largest event of its kind in New Zealand if not the world. This is truly an event that is fast growing to be one of the most significant youth sports events in New Zealand.
