Go for EDO!
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). And it’s much more fun in a team!
Each year, EDO Tasmania enters a team in what has become a key fundraising event for us. Join Team EDO and your efforts to get to the pinnacle will help us to keep using the law to protect places like kunanyi.
The walk is very achievable for any reasonably active person, and the run……..is probably a good personal challenge!

Next year’s Point to Pinnacle and Point to Pub will be on Sunday 17 November 2019.
Registrations open 1 August 2019.

A record 32 members of Team EDO walked or ran to the top of kunanyi on a glorious sunny day. Thanks to over 400 donors, we hit our $25,000 target!
Heartfelt thanks to everyone who has donated, to Find Your Feet and Shelley Miller for their training support, Sam Lyne for the great logo, Friendly ChemMart for the jellybeans and Vicki Campbell for her excellent team captaining!
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.
