This is an open invite to all GodZone 2018 teams – and other keen adventurers! Come and join GODZone team ‘Moose on the Loose’ for an epic training weekend in Fiordland over Labour weekend 2017.
The challenge is to complete the Hollyford-Pyke packrafting loop in under 24hrs. The distance is approximately 150km, with the option of packrafting just over 100km of the route. It’s typically done in around 4-7 days with packrafts. You can read about a sub-24 hour attempt in this blog post by Andy Magness: http://ultramentalbook.com/success/
If you’re keen to take it a bit easier, you’re welcome to do it in two days and actually get a full nights sleep in-between 🙂 There are some nice huts!
Must bring all of your own gear and be fully self-sufficient. More info on this coming later.
Converge on Te Anau Friday evening, ready to start the Hollyford Hustle on Saturday or Sunday morning.
Sounds sweet, right? It’s the ultimate way to put your team dynamics and fitness to the test in the build-up to GODZone 2018!
Note: The FEAR Society (Fiordland Endurance and Adventure Racing Society) are holding one of these challenges too, the ‘Hollyday’. Theirs is happening in mid December. Due to other commitments we can’t make it. Be sure to check out their Facebook page for more info.
