What is the GODZone Adventure Race?

The House of Travel Racing for Starship Team will be competing in the Orion Health GODZone Adventure Challenge, this Easter, raising funds for the national children's hospital.

GODZone is an expedition-style adventure race taking place in Queenstown from this Easter (7-14 April). The race traverses a distance of approximately 450km and takes most participants around four to five days. Teams, who must remain together at all times, will be expected to navigate, trek, mountain bike and kayak on a non-stop basis over a vast array of different landscapes testing the mental and physical skills of participants.

House of Travel in conjunction with The New Zealand Rugby Players Association has put together the four-person "House of Travel Racing for Starship" team to compete in the Orion Health GODZone Adventure Challenge.
The team comprises ex-Blues and New Zealand Maori Player David Gibson, current Black Fern Huriana Manuel, ex-Blues player Ben Meyer and Players Association CEO Rob Nichol.

Other well known sporting stars and faces will also be joining them for various legs of the race. All Black and current Sky rugby presenter Ian Jones is the first confirmed to join the team for the early stages of the race with others to be announced over the coming weeks.

The team will be racing under the House of Travel and Starship Foundation banners aiming to raise funds for Starship's National Air Ambulance Service.

Year-round the Air Ambulance Service rushes medical experts to life-threatening emergencies around the country where they stabilise the children and allow them to be brought safely to Starship to receive the care they need.
The Starship Foundation raises the $1.5 million needed annually for this vital service which includes staff training and aviation costs.

House of Travel is the exclusive Gold Sponsor of the team. Škoda New Zealand is the first to come on board as a Silver Sponsor and MoleMap New Zealand is the first bronze sponsor.

You can also text STAR to 469 (ONLY IF YOU ARE IN NEW ZEALAND) to make an automatic $3 donation.
