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

The 2018 event is limited to 40 NZSSARC teams and 10 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.
