World Multisport Championship

The Coast to Coast has become almost a rite of passage for multisport athletes from around the world with over 20,000 people having completed the event in the 40+ years to date.

The race is one of the world's longest running multi-sports events and is even older than the Hawaiian Ironman. From similar roots, Robin Judkins founded the event in 1983 when just 25 hardy souls took on the 243km challenge over two days.

Over the years that grew to a peak of close to 1000 competitors and the event has grown with different sections to suit all those from the professional athletes to the weekend warriors.

Held every February, the race starts on the West Coast, and Kumara Beach, and traverse the width of the South Island, crossing the main divide and finishing on the East Coast with the finish line at the New Brighton Pier in Christchurch.

The One Day race was introduced in 1989 and has the title of the World Multisport Championship with the top athletes covering the entire course in close to 11 hours. The other end of the field sees some competitors in the Two Day race taking closer to 24 hours.
