Our team has a love for the great outdoors and appreciation for the enduring Kiwi spirit. With this in mind, we took the opportunity for Tuatara Structures to sponsor a Marlborough team for the 2018 GODZone event.

The team, made up of Kieran Hickman, Bek Scherp, Andrew Jones and Glenn Blackmore, took out an impressive third place in the event.

The team’s epic achievement was chronicled by Stuff’s Emily Heyward. We’ve included a snippet for you below.

“A punctured leg, fears of infection and just 17 hours sleep over a gruelling six-day GODZone race were never going to stop Marlborough’s Team Tuatara Structures from crossing the finish line.

“After more than 150 hours of pushing their bodies to the limit, Marlburians Kieran Hickman, Bek Scherp, Andrew Jones and Glenn Blackmore finally finished in third place at the GODZone Chapter 7 in Fiordland and the sense of relief and accomplishment was overwhelming.

“Tears were shed, hugs were given and some well-earned bottles of bubbles were popped to celebrate the achievement.”
