Point to Pinnacle is rated as the toughest Half Marathon in the World.  Starting at Wrest Point in Sandy Bay, and finishing at the top of kunanyi/Mt Wellington, the 21.2km course is all uphill and 1270m of elevation is gained!  This year, Point to Pinnacle is on Sunday,  20th November.

The 2022 Point to Pinnacle Prep Program includes 8, Saturday morning,  group sessions and multiple self-guided (“Homework”) sessions to complete in your own time between group sessions. The combination of group and solo sessions will help you prepare physically and mentally for this epic challenge.  If you can’t get to a session, John will help prepare a session for you to complete, wherever you are.  If you’re keen to get your hill climbing capabilities up, but won’t be going to the Point to Pinnacle, you are still very welcome to be part of the program!

If you’re new to this hill walking business and not sure if you’re ready to aim for the Point to Pinnacle in 2022, come to our free walk up Mt Arthur on September 6th!
