Welcome to the Pinnacles Classic, where the hills feel like mountains!
- Everyone who completes the course will receive a Finishers Medal
- There are no wave starts. Everyone will start at 7am
This race, over the many hills at Brookfield around the Gold Creek Reservoir, will start behind the dam wall.
This year we'll run the course in a clockwise direction, so we'll take off up the hill to the left of the Gold Creek Reservoir. There is one checkpoint half way at the rain gauge, so it is necessary that you carry as much water as you need to make it to that point. Remember that in April in can still be quite warm. Take some fuel for on the way as well, but there will be some fruit and goodies at the checkpoint. Note that we have a "No Cup" policy so you'll need to carry your own collapsible cup or water bottle if you need a hit of coke (yes - the soft drink) at the checkpoint or the finish area.
Parking is limited at the end of Gold Creek Road. Please try to assist us in reducing the number of vehicles required to park by arranging carpooling with friends or running groups. Vehicles that come to the end of Gold Creek Road please follow the directions of the parking marshals. Note - there is to be No Parking within 2 metres either side of any residential driveway.
Please be aware that this is a running event, not a walking event, so we expect that all participants would be back in approx 3 hrs. The race cut-off will be 3hrs & 30mins. You pick up your race bib from the registration table at least 30min before your start time.
There are NO entries on the day.
Have fun out there, and I am looking forward to sharing a laugh and something to eat/drink with you at the finish line.
Refunds are available up to two weeks before the race (-$20 admin cost). Also, please don't enter if you are under 18, as unfortunately we won't be able to let you start!
