Elina Ussher has come from behind to win her third women's Coast to Coast longest day multisport race.

After giving up a four and a half minute lead after the mountain run, Ussher made her move on the kayak leg and eventually arrived in Christchurch six minutes clear of the field.

She said she had to battle the conditions as well as her own health as she was cramping up almost from the start of her run.

Earlier, Sam Clark won his first men's title.
