Go for EDO! Sunday 19 November 2017
Regarded as one of the toughest and most scenic half marathons, the Point to Pinnacle (“P2P”) course is 21.1 km, from Wrest Point on the River Derwent to the summit of kunanyi/Mount Wellington (1270m).
In 2015 and 2016 EDO Tasmania entered a fund-raising team in the event to help with its ongoing funding marathon.
In 2017 our team of walkers and runners will again tackle P2P and ‘Go for EDO’.

Our thanks to Hanny and Graham at Find Your Feet, for once again supporting our team.
Thank you also to Shelley Miller for presenting our first training/preparation session.
The Friendly Care Chemmart Pharmacy gave us a healthy discount on our team supply of jelly beans.
And our logo was designed by Sam Lyne.
Next year’s P2P will be on Sunday 18 November 2018 – save the date!
Due to wintry conditions on the summit, the 2016 Point to Pinnacle was conducted over a modified course, from the casino to Fern Tree and return.
Our team raised a grand total of $23,085.
A huge thank you to our donors – all 388 of them!
And congratulations to the team for a great effort.

In 2015 EDO Tasmania entered its first team in Point to Pinnacle.
Our fab team of walkers, runners and a pedaller (the amazing Paul Pritchard, the event’s first disability trike entrant) completed the event within the time limits.
With a sense of the theatrical, Paul sent the crowd wild with his dramatic sprint to the finish line with only 40 seconds to spare. Such an inspirational effort from everyone involved!
The EDO Tasmania team raised a total of $11,779, including a $500 donation from the organisers for being the highest fundraising team.
