You will compete in teams of 8 made up of 4 leads and 4 follows

You will register as an individual and then join a team that has already been created, or you can create your own team for yourself and others to join

Once your payment has been confirmed, you will also be able to change freely between teams

Your team will need an epic team name and each team should have a team uniform so that they are easily identifiable from the other teams. This could be as simple as a colored bandana or a full uniform. Points will be awarded to the best dressed team!


During the 24-hour Marathon a minimum of one lead and one follow from each team must be on the dance floor, dancing, at all times (not necessarily with each other), which means you can tag team on and off the dance floor as needed

Every 2 hours there will be a new surprise, this could be food or drink deliveries, team challenges and games or just something random that will add to the experience!


Points will be awarded to teams for successfully completing the marathon, being the best dressed teams and for winning challenges throughout the 24 hours as follows:

 👉Successfully completing the Marathon (having one lead and one follow from your team dancing at all times): 100 points
 👉Winning team challenges: 25 points
 👉Best dressed teams: 

1st Place: 50 points
2nd Place: 30 Points
3rd Place: 20 points

The points will be monitored and awarded at the discretion of the NZouk Committee throughout the Marathon
