The Coast to Coast is an iconic multi sport event based in the South Island of New Zealand. Held every February the race starts on the West Coast, at Kumara beach and traverses the width of the South Island, crossing the main divide where competitors reach over 1000 metres above sea level, finishing on the east coast in Christchurch at the Pier on New Brighton beach.

Today over 800 athletes line up to run, cycle and kayak across the South Island. 1987 saw “The Longest Day”, a one day ‘World Championship event introduced.
