Unprecedented demand has seen the 2022 Kathmandu Coast to Coast sell out in less than five minutes.

Entries for the iconic multisport event opened at midday yesterday, where nearly two thousand people were already waiting online, looking to snap up the 1,000 available entries.

It’s a great turnaround from seven years ago, when Trojan Holdings purchased the event with just 460 entries in total. “It’s hard not to be disappointed for the people who missed out, but it’s also a reflection of how much hard work and dedication that’s gone into the event to make it a favourite with Kiwis, Aussies and multisporter’s from around the world,” said Race Director Glen Currie.

Currie said that while Covid19 had been tricky to manage and acknowledged that it has had a negative impact on a lot of businesses, he felt the increased demand for space was in part down to kiwis wanting to get out and about in the outdoors. “The feedback we’re getting is kiwis are again falling in love with their own backyard and as a result the Kathmandu Coast to Coast is again a must do for kiwis all around New Zealand, New Zealanders are travelling near not far!’

Currie who runs the event with just three other’s and a mountain of volunteers said the team was feeling humbled, honoured and excited about the level of interest in the event. “Running events is hard, really hard, especially with Covid19, health and safety and the commercial pressures that come with operating an event like this. But when people react like they have and sign up, well that just makes it all worthwhile.”  

Entries for the events major category the Longest Day saw the most entrants in its history since being introduced in 1987, with over 300 people entering to take on the gruelling 243-kilometre course in one day.  The longest day has proven to be the ultimate endurance goal for individuals in New Zealand with over more entrants than ever signed up for this category.

A wait list has been created and those people on this will be contacted in the next week.
