GZ Pure is the ultimate expedition adventure racing experience with unsupported teams travelling approximately 530km across New Zealand’s wilderness for up to 7 days. GZ Pure represents the most technically challenging adventure race in the world and teams should prepare accordingly. Places for GZ Pure are limited and the event is expected to sell out. All teams should consider carefully whether they have the requisite skills, physical and mental strength to complete the GZ Pure event given the technical difficulty and course length. For teams or competitors uncertain about their ability, or those who have not done a race of this length or magnitude before, the advice is to do either the GZ Pursuit or GZ Prime event. They have all the challenges, strategy, thrill of racing hard in the wilderness, but are more achievable, particularly for first timers.
