Adventurethon Demolish Clarence Valley partners with Kathmandu Coast to Coast New Zealand
Adventurethon is thrilled to announce the partnering of Adventurethon Demolish and Kathmandu Coast to Coast.
With the winner of the Clarence Valley Adventurethon Ultimate Demolish Ultra Distance (Ride, run and Paddle long course) for both Men’s and Women’s Category gaining free entry to the Coast to Coast Multisport race in New Zealand in Feb 2018.
The Adventurethon Demolish event ( November 25 & 26 2017) is a must do for anyone considering doing the Kathmandu Coast to Coast one day as the Course features sections of similarly technical running. It also features some great introductory easy rapids to start getting the downriver paddling skills dialed in and fitness together. In fact the timing is perfect to kick off a 2018 Kathmandu Coast to Coast campaign.
New South Wales’ Clarence Valley region is also home to the famous Nymboida Camping and Canoe Centre who operate certification for those needing whitewater certificates for coast to coast.
“We are really excited to be partnering with Coast to Coast for the Clarence Valley Demolish Event and cant wait to see the best athletes from around the country battling it out for the honour of being able to represent Australia at the Coast to Coast event in February” says Joel Savage, Event Director, Adventurethon Demolish – Clarence Valley.
Both the Clarence Valley Demolish and the Coast to Coast New Zealand are in beautiful regions and the river of both races are certainly highlights of both courses.
The Coast to Coast is an iconic Multisport event based in the South Island of New Zealand.
The “Grandpa” of Multi-sport, Coast to Coast should be on every Adventurethoners bucket list. Held every February, the race starts on the West Coast of New Zealand, at Kumara Beach and traverses the width of the South Island. It crosses the main divide and finishes on the East Coast at the Pier on New Brighton Beach in Christchurch.
The race is one of the world’s longest running multi-sports events and is older even 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.
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.
Adventurethon Demolish is set over 2 days and over some very similar terrain, technicality and conditions. This makes the Clarence Valley Demolish a must do event as a stepping stone towards that event.
The Clarence Valley Demolish is a really big deal!
“Events like Adventurethon Demolish are perfect to unearth New multisport talent and find the champions of tomorrow, the format of having a separate Ride, Run and paddle will let new talent emerge” says Joel Savage, Event Director, Adventurethon Demolish – Clarence Valley.
