The Knight Frank Point to Pinnacle run and recreational walk starts at Wrest Point car park following Sandy Bay Road, left into Byron Street and left into Davey Street at Hotel Soho. Davey Street becomes Huon Road as it travels the route to the right turn onto Pillinger Drive and on to the pinnacle of Mount Wellington. The course is 21.4km long and just over 1,270 metres in elevation. This race is physically challenging and scenically stunning.
