Team Yealands Family Wines have won GodZone Chapter Five after racing 530km through epic New Zealand countryside for more than three days and all they wanted was a beer and a pie.

Dan Moore, Sia Svendsen, Dan Busch and Chris Forne crossed the finish line in Kaiteriteri at 11.47pm in a time of 3 days, 13 hours and 44 minutes.

Richie McCaw and the rest of the Cure Kids team will still on the course in 20th place.

Crowds gathered on the beach to welcome the team, who said they ended on a high with their favourite day of the race.

"Today was my favourite day, it was real cool that final trek just real gritty, big boulders, nice sunrise. It was nice to finish on a high. I was a little bit scared of the night paddle but it worked out really well, I guess the fine weather," Chris Forne said.

"This was our goal, I think we race really well as a team and we work together really well."

The team were rewarded at the finish line with a bottle of Moa beer and a hot pie - which Svendsen turned down, saying she had already eaten six today.
