7-15 March 2014
This multi stage race is set against the backdrop of some of New Zealand’s most breathtaking scenery. Competitors will not only haul up some of the South Island’s highest peaks, they will also experience the delights that the dramatic coastline has to offer.
The fastest teams will complete this race in approximately four days taking on only one to two hours sleep in total while the back of the field will have up to seven days to finish the course which will cover a total distance of 500km.
Teams will be expected to navigate, trek, mountain bike, kayak and canoe over an array of challenging landscapes with long sections through the night and often in adverse weather conditions.
