The Pinnacles Classic is the race where the hills feel like mountains!
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 left of the GC Reservoir.
