Pinnacles Classic – Sat 18 Apr 2015

Pinnacles Classic – Sat 18 Apr 2015

Many years ago the legendary Peter Holles from the Brookfield Runners initiated this off-road race along the tough course around the Gold Creek Reservoir. The course is 18km long and leads you over 18 serious hills.

Starting life as a small scale friendly race, with a sausage and a beer at the end to refuel the legs, this run has grown into a popular hit-out to test the fitness of locals and the not so locals.

Every odd year the race is run anti-clockwise, every even year the race is run clockwise.  So, this year we’ll take off up the hills to the right of the GC Reservoir.

Date and Time: Saturday 18 April, start at 7am, slow wave starts 6:40.  Race briefings are 10mins before the starts. Be there at least 30mins before your start to pick up your bib and nominate your start time.

Car-pooling required: Options are available during the registration process.

Course: The course is 18km long over serious hills in Brisbane Forest Park (d’Aguillar National Park), at the end of Gold Creek Road Brookfield, starting from Gold Creek Reservoir.  It is a race for seriously fit runners. See the map and course profile for further details.

Registration and cost: Entries open Monday 9 February and close midnight 12th April with 120 entrants allowed. Entry cost $25 for members, $30 for non-members. Refunds are available up to two weeks before the race (-$20 admin cost).

Register now, but nominate your wave on the day when you pick up your race bib from the registration table at least 30min before your start.  Race briefing takes place 10min before the start of each wave.  Main wave (2) starts at 7am, very slow wave (1) starts at 6:40am.

Please note that the winners and placings are taken from wave 2!

Fuel and Nutrition: you need to carry at least 750mls of fluids. There is one checkpoint halfway along the course with water, electrolytes and lollies.

There are sports drinks, water, cakes, fruit and a bbq at the finish to replenish what’s left behind on the trails.

I hope you will have great fun running this great course, and I am looking forward sharing a laugh and something to eat/drink at the finish line with you.
