FITNESS COACH & TRAINING PLAN FOR POINT TO PINNACLE 

The Point to Pinnacle – a 21.2 km all uphill course from Wrest Point in Sandy Bay to the summit of kunanyi/ Mt Wellington – is regarded as the toughest half marathon course in the World. Held annually in November, the entire course is on sealed roads and 1,220 metres of elevation are an added challenge to the course distance.

Ascent Fitness’ program commences each September and prepares walkers from a base fitness level to be physically and mentally prepared to give the event their best shot, by testing participants in a range of increasingly challenging urban, trail and mountainous environments.

Along the way, we can also ready walkers for the Point to Pinnacle’s 10km event (The Point to Pub) and also for the toughest walking trail event in Tassie: The Triple Top.

Although success can never be guaranteed, we are proud to say that every participant trained by Ascent Fitness has completed the Point to Pinnacle inside the 4.5 hour cut-off time.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How much time does it take?
The program is conducted over 10 weeks. Weekly group training sessions range from 2 hours to 5 hours in length. Some sessions are held outside of Launceston and travel time is in addition to walking time. In between group sessions, participants complete 2 x 60-minute sessions in their own time.
I had an injury, can I still join?
You certainly can!  Any advice from your GP or Physio is always helpful. If you’re not sure where your fitness levels are at, contact John from Ascent Fitness and make a booking for a 1-on-1 walking fitness test.
I am pregnant. Is this walk suitable for me?
Generally, walking is OK during pregnancy.  However, we ask that you come with specific advice from your GP or Obstetrician on what is appropriate for you.

When you head for the eastern side of the Launceston Urban Fringe Trail from Rocherlea to Ravenswood at 7am on a Sunday, social distancing is easy!

Our small group headed down the Rocherlea Old Rail Trail (the 'back track' if you're a Rocherlea local) and we got to see in full why one Launceston City Councillor described the LUFT as the 'warts and all tour of Launceston'!

There were some pretty bits and some not so great bits along the way, but the not so great bits can get better if more people use the LUFT.
