Stage 4

Big Hill Palmer Range

This stage is BIG! At 85km it is the longest single stage trek ever at a GODZone Chapter. Even the shorter PRIME and PURSUIT course clocks in at a hefty 65km. The terrain is open and fast, however, and teams should be able to move at a good pace. The focus will be on good route selection, particularly between CP18 and CP19 where several options exist. The Palmer Range will see teams get up high and they should enjoy some wonderful views of the surrounding mountains and Southern Alps. Some teams will be experiencing sore feet at the end of this stage for sure.
