Sam Clark has won the Coast to Coast for the fourth time.
Clark, who didn’t race last year, held off defending champion Dougal Allan by 7min 42sec to finish in 10hr 05min 01sec.
Tauranga’s Corrine O’Donnell claimed the women’s title in 12hr 53min 39sec, beating event first-timer Ali Wilson by just 3min 05sec.
The Coast to Coast is one of New Zealand’s oldest multisport races. It goes from the West Coast of the South Island to the East Coast. The 250km takes competitors around 10-12 hours.
In that time they run, cycle and paddle there way across the island.
