NZ Coal Shovelling Championship in association with Kubota & Northfuels

How quickly could you shift a ton of coal into a hopper? The world record for a team of two shovelling half a ton is a staggering 14.8 seconds held by West Coasters Brian Coghlan & Piet Groot, but which of our ‘Coal Blacks’ will take out this year’s champs?

Come along and put your back into our ‘have a go’ sessions on Sunday from 11am till 1pm , then kick back to watch the main event from 1.15-2.15pm.

In 2017, the men’s and women’s titles went to West Coaster’s Tyrell Green and Kylie Banks respectively.

As well as coal shovelling athletes from the West Coast expect to see some famous names from more familiar sports competing for individual, doubles and novices titles.

Not to be missed!
