The annual Coast to Coast race, from Kumara to Christchurch, is New Zealand’s major multisport event. Starting at daybreak at Kumara beach, competitors have to cycle a total of 140 kilometres, run 36 kilometres (including a mountain stage across an alpine pass), and kayak 67 kilometres on the Canterbury side. The average winning time for the 243-kilometre course is 11 hours 30 minutes for men, and 13 hours for women. In 2015 the finish line was moved from Sumner to New Brighton beach.
