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’.
Will you join us? We hope so – the more the merrier!
What’s in it for you?
- team singlet
- training support (see below)
- social gatherings and training sessions (entirely optional!),
- reimbursement of registration fees on request**
- and the warm glow of helping us to protect Tassie’s spectacular environment (including kunanyi!).
**for anyone fund-raising, and on a low income or in difficult circumstances
Questions? Here are a few Q & As, and please do get in touch if you need to know more.
Our second support session will be “Q & A” with Hanny Allston of Find Your Feet.
When: Tuesday 26 September at 5.30 p.m.
Where: Find Your Feet, Elizabeth Street (upstairs)
Contact Vicki for more details.
Ready to sign up? See our “How to” guide to joining the team.
Please take note of the details for Question 8, where you can choose a unique name for your race bib.
We’d love to see some EDO names out there – e.g. “Joe for EDO” or “EDO Jane”.
There’s a 16 character limit, and the name needs to be unique – i.e. it won’t allow a name that someone else has already used.
If you have already entered P2P or Point to Pub, you can still join our team.
And if you already belong to another team, you can still fundraise for us!
Please get in touch if you can’t work out how to do this.
And if P2P is not for you, never fear – you can always sponsor our team!
Please email us on email@example.com if you’d like to help in some other way – e.g. recruiting members, obtaining sponsorship, team support and so on.

This year’s new “Point to Pub” event has already sold out, so don’t delay – register soon for P2P.
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.
And our logo was designed by Sam Lyne.
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.
See some photos on our Facebook page.
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.
