The Garmin Point to Pinnacle returns for 2012

Shared by

Have you got what it takes to make it through the grueling Point to Pinnacle course?

Sweat it out on November 18 along 21.4 kilometres, starting from Wrest Point car park and ascending just over 1,270 metres to the pinnacle of Mount Wellington.

You can choose to run or walk the course, with the physically challenging event supporting Movember this year – an initiative aimed at raising funds and awareness for men's health, with an emphasis on prostate cancer and depression.

Fundraising for charity is a huge part of the Point to Pinnacle event, where you can opt to support the Movember cause or choose your own charity close to your heart.

During the registration process you'll be given the option of selecting your charity group to support, and will be sent prompts to help you set up a personalised fundraising page.

Send messages out to your networks asking to help donate to your cause, or come up with your own creative fundraising initiatives!

"Come to Tasmania. Come to run. Come to have fun. This could be the best time of your life," event patron Bryce Courtenay said.

You can choose to enter the event in teams of four (all male, all female or mixed), where you have the chance to compete for prestige and prize money.

A new category for corporate and recreational teams has been added to this year's event to cater for large groups wanting to compete in a range of ways. This includes big teams running to fundraise money for charity, businesses wanting to join the event as a large group and those interested in participating as a training squad.

Register now for the Hobart Point to Pinnacle, with early registration encouraged as the event is expected to sell out with a maximum of 1,900 entries.

Standard entry fee costs $60 per person and is valid until November 11, registrations after that date are $70 per person and closes on November 17 at 16:00 (EST).
