Coast to Coast

2024 Kathmandu Coast to Coast was held in February - starting in Kumara on the West Coast and finishing at New Brighton Beach Pier in Christchurch - a distance of 243 kilometres.

Striving to push our boundaries, through inhospitable terrain and harsh conditions: that is what connects us with Coast to Coast and those testing themselves in New Zealand's toughest multi-sport challenge.

A challenge like no other...

This gruelling event, famous for its difficult terrain, spans 243km. Athletes face running over the Southern Alps, navigating icy rivers, kayaking 70km on the Waimakariri River, and cycling 70km to the finish. Finishing is a triumph, and the race has become a global attraction.

A global attraction

Originally with 25 athletes in 1983, Coast to Coast is now a top multisport event. Elite athletes worldwide tackle the course in a single day, while it remains a Kiwi rite of passage for locals.
