2013 Speight's Coast to Coast Movie Tour

2013 Speight's Coast to Coast Movie Tour

A movie following the 2013 Speight’s Coast to Coast is touring New Zealand during July and August.

Established in 1983, the Speight’s Coast to Coast is the world’s longest running multisport event and doubles very year as the world title race.

The Speight’s Coast to Coast movie tour will visit 11 venues nationally, five in the North Island and six in the South Island.

The 40min movie, produced by, follows the 2013 event, with coverage of both the One Day world championship event and the Two Day event. Highlights include the participation of Olympic gold medal rower Mahe Drysdale.

“I’m over the moon with the movie” says race director Robin Judkins.

“It really captures the essence of the event. But the tour is also a great chance for people to meet other multisporters and quiz us on the event. If you're thinking about entering the Speight’s Coast to Coast in any fashion, it’s a chance to find out everything you ever wanted to know.”
