Event Profile

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. Also, returning this year is the Hazell Bros 10km course which takes participants along part of the spectacular Point to Pinnacle course before finishing at the historic Fern Tree Tavern.

The Point to Pinnacle encourages people to embrace an active and healthy lifestyle while providing a true challenge of the spirit.

This year is the 24th edition of the event and will see 3000 people taking on the mountain, 500 racing to the Pub, and hopefully more record fundraising totals!

Asking your supporters to compete for you

It’s easy to make the most of the event opportunity. It all begins with asking your supporters to take part and support you by giving their effort and time. Make sure you ask:
  • Past supporters who have run, walked, ridden or swam for you previously
  • Both your one off and regular donors, by offering them another way they can support you with their effort
  • Your volunteers
  • Your charity’s staff
