Stage 2

Poulter Broken

The PURE teams will restart at Mt White Bridge and complete a short trek over the Binser Saddle into the Poulter River Valley. Here they can opt to paddle or trek. Decisions will be made about speed versus looking after feet and energy levels. Then another decision whether to paddle the Waimakariri or trek around will be made. The PURSUIT and PRIME teams will miss this early part and trek into the stage from Flock Hill, joining the route at Avoca Homestead. Weather permitting, all teams will head up the Broken River gorge all the way to Cave Stream and a short caving mission. Multiple river crossings will be the order of the afternoon and evening. The final section will see teams finish at Castle Hill.
