Stage 1

Banks Peninsula

Teams begin their Chapter 8 adventure in Akaroa with a coasteering section from town to Takamatua. This will include some swims, jumps and spectacular shoreline views. Then it's on to the bike and a stiff climb up towards Mt Sinclair and some free flowing technical single track across the skyline of the Banks Peninsula. A short paddle from Diamond Harbour to Governors Bay shows off the splendour of Lyttleton Harbour before a final haul up the hill on foot. This will take teams into the Christchurch Adventure Park and a final orienteering section - upon finishing they will receive their full course maps for the remainder of the race. Teams can't be late or they'll miss transport to the re-start line!
