"Speights Coast To Coast Endurance Race In New Zealand Is One Of The World's Great Multisport Endurance Races"
Speights Coast To Coast endurance race in New Zealand, from the black sands of the Tasman Sea at Kumara on the wild West Coast of New Zealand's South Island to Christchurch on the East, is one of the world's great endurance races.
On foot, cycling, in kayaks - across the rugged mountains of the Southern Alps, fast flowing rivers, the endless Canterbury Plains, for around 14 hours the contestants battle it out to see who will reach the golden sands of the Pacific Coast first.
Each year more and more competitors are drawn from all parts of the world to compete against nature, their fellow participants and above all themselves, as they slog it out on the exhausting route through sometimes spectacular, sometimes inhospitable landscapes in the heart of the South Island of New Zealand.
Of course the video below, filmed during the 2005 race, cannot convey what it really feels like to undergo the immense physical pressures of this extreme adventure.
Nevertheless, the relentlessly moving pace and the appropriately matching music do an excellent job of giving us a vivid first impression of the challenge known as the Speights Coast To Coast endurance race in New Zealand.
