Godzone World Champs


Today’s launch of the brand new global Expedition Racing World Championships has cemented a bold future for the world’s largest expedition racing event, GODZONE, held each year in New Zealand and the wider adventure racing community.

The inaugural Expedition Racing World Championships to be hosted by GODZONE in Fiordland, South Island, in March 2023 has been co-developed and sanctioned by World Obstacle – Federation Internationale de Sports d’Obstacles based in Switzerland.

“We have reflected on GODZONE’S success over the past ten chapters achieving significant global reach and worldwide recognition. We saw the opportunity to accelerate adventure racing as a sport by creating a new competition hierarchy at a championship level,” says GODZONE Founder & Event Director Warren Bates.

“GODZONE has become the biggest, most followed, most watched and highly respected expedition event globally, and these new championships endorse that status.”

Bates says the revolutionary new competition sets an exciting vision for the sport to be more internationally recognised.

“GODZONE is now aligned with World Obstacle (WO) to develop and improve the governance and growth of the sport to meet the standards delivered at other top international sporting events. WO has the right to allocate World Championships, World Cups and Continental Championships, allowing expedition racing to gain traction on the international sporting stage.”
