15: CP Media – Kathmandu Coast to Coast Special 2nd September 2020 – Sam Manson & Trish Hastie


We start the show this week with Sam Manson.  

Sam is an athlete that has been knocking on the door of his first Longest Day win for the past few years.  If a bit of luck was to go his way he could be standing on the top of the podium in 2021.  

We talk to Sam about his training philosophy and preparation… but that’s not all,  Sam is also a respected Kayak Guide and has helped a large number of people to develop their skills and build confidence on the river. We use our time with Sam to learn about how to master the mighty Waimakariri.


Trish Hastie

We chat to Trish Hastie who completed her very first Kathmandu Coast to Coast this year.  The Coast to Coast has been on Trish’s radar for a number of years and with her kids now aged 10, 8, and 6 the time was right to train and prepare for the event.  We find out how she got on. 


Matt Bateman

Finally, we check in with Matt Bateman and his progress towards the 2 day Tandem event.  We find out how his road biking has gone and why his paddling has had mixed success…
