The teams set off from Lower Hutt's Main St on Saturday 11 February and finished in Pukekohe, Auckland on Saturday 18 February covering 800kms as a team over the 7 days. Trailing in second place for the first two days, the team moved up the leader board on day three, only to be overtaken on day six but fought back to the top of the leader board on day seven to claim the $57,500 prize package.
