With the finish of Adventurethon Demolish in Clarence Valley, winners have been announced and are ready to join the Aussie Team heading to Kathmandu Coast to Coast. James Pretto and Kim Beckinsale (first male and female finishers in the Ultimate Demolish, Ultra Distance) have won a free entry as part of their prize pool from Adventurethon thanks to the partnership with the Kathmandu Coast to Coast team.
The Kathmandu Coast to Coast event is the world championships of multisport and takes in a 243km journey from the west coast to the East coast of New Zealand, taking on run, mountain biking and paddling across some of the most amazing terrain.
Both James and Kim claim the Coast to Coast race has been a bucket list race and are stoked to be going.
James says, “Super stoked to win an entry to coast. I’ve been trying to get there for the past 2 years but unfortunately due to injury couldn’t make it. The weekend in the Clarence Valley was perfect training for coast, and the Gorge run although super tough, was one of the most spectacular event trail runs I’ve ever done.”
Kim added, “I am so excited to have won an entry into Coast to Coast as it is the most iconic multisport event in the world and as it was already cemented in my 2018 race calendar this prize is the icing on the cake after such a great weekend of racing at the Adventurethon Demolish Grafton.”
There is a large contingent of Aussies heading to New Zealand and we are thrilled to be sending our top two athletes from Adventurethon Demolish Clarence Valley to take on the adventure. In addition to our other athletes across various Coast to Coast categories. Some of the other Aussies include Sam Stedman and Elizabeth Dornam who are currently in New Zealand scouting for the upcoming Coast to Coast adventure.
