Chris and Julia Fisher have had a wonderful honeymoon, making the most of their time out on the trail together and loving every minute of it - they rode well, navigated well, ate really well and slept well on their way to Wellington. They probably would have gone on for another week if it were an option but the adventure has finally come to an end after 20days 9hours 48min. Friends and family welcomed them home and there were smiles all around as they received their blankets - well done guys on a great ride.

The other two members of the group were Leon van der Nest and Andries de Villiers, they also finished in 20days 9hours 48min. Although they also had a large group of supporters to welcome them home, there were no blankets for them, at least not yet... as the only two entrants in the Extreme Triathlon this year, Leon and Andries still have to paddle the Berg River Canoe Marathon to complete their challenge. With the trail run and mountain bike legs now complete, they were at least allowed to enjoy their pizzas with the others. Tomorrow its off to trip the river before they start their four days of paddling on Wednesday - and only then their blankets. Well done so far guys and all the best for the final stretch.
