Knight Frank Point to Pinnacle
The Knight Frank Point to Pinnacle is a 21.4km run or walk from Hobart’s Iconic Wrest Point Casino to the Pinnacle of the city’s majestic Mount Wellington. The course includes 1270m of climbing and provides an achievable challenge for all levels of athletes from elite runners to recreational joggers and walkers.
The Point to Pinnacle encourages People to embrace an active and healthy lifestyle while providing a true challenge of the spirit.
This year will also see the birth of a new event The Point to Pub, which will be run at the same time as the Point to Pinnacle and finish at the Historic Fern Tree Tavern, The Point to Pub will cover 10kms from Wrest Point Casino and climb 460m.

This year is the 23rd edition of the Point to Pinnacle and will see 3000 people taking on the mountain and hopefully also record more record fundraising totals.
This is the 5th year P2P has worked with the Everyday Hero (EDH) web platform and event charity partner Movember to open up fundraising opportunities to all entrants. Fundraising is an optional but encouraged part of your P2P experience and is a great way to help someone else overcome their personal mountains while you train and take on yours.
Funds raised over the last 5 years through EDH for a variety of charities has now totalled $305,058 and through Movember (raising funds and awareness for prostate and testicular cancer and mental Health) have also raised $420,713. The Mobart Mobros group have been a major driving force behind this outstanding total and we would like to thank and encourage them to continue their amazing work for this great cause.
It is easy to see what an amazing and positive difference we can all make to others if we help raise some much needed funds for a cause close to our hearts.
We are extremely proud of the P2P fundraising tally since we moved in this direction 5 years ago and in this short time have managed to raise a collective $725,771 for a wide range of charities and organisations.
We encourage you to raise as much as you possibly can, encourage others to get involved in raising funds and hope to collectively raise over $200,000 again in 2017.
