Thousands of people have come out to support GODZone Chapter Five teams as they make their way through the first day of the race.

With hundreds on the beach at the start line on Kaiteriteri beach and hundreds more waiting for the teams to arrive at Rabbit Island, competitors have been cheered on for much of the route.

As they moved onto the Great Taste Trail, supporters were waiting to cheer them on.
