It’s a half marathon, and the only way is up.
On Sunday 20 November, more than 3,000 people will take on Tasmania’s Mount Wellington for this year's Point to Pinnacle fundraising event, including the Mater Smiling for Smiddy team.
Mater Foundation is calling on all potential team mates to join what’s been dubbed the toughest road half marathon in the world — for good reason!
Participants may either run or walk a 21.1km course encompassing more than 1270 m of ascending gradients.
The end goal is reaching the top of the often-snow-capped Mount Wellington, which offers spectacular views of the greater Hobart region, Bruny Island and down towards the South West Wilderness area.
Participants can expect extreme changes in climate and weather conditions, making it physically challenging, but scenically stunning.
There is a 10km run or walk option available from Point to Pub for those wanting a shorter experience.
Joining the Smiling for Smiddy team means joining an incredible group of athletes and fundraisers who share the values of mateship, spirit and teamwork, while knowing you are helping to fund critical cancer research projects at Mater.
Registrations for Team Smiddy close in August — head to the website now to register!
