This years Pinnacles Classic will be run on Saturday 18th April. This is a charming but challenging run, which is not widely known but growing in popularity. Once you’ve done it you’ll always come back. The report from last years race reads:
Previously a secret to a small group of runners, the course climbs and drops 1,060 metres in a series of mean sharp hills, most with names which define their characteristics.
Example hills: “The Brute”, “The Mother” (a one kilometer plus slog up a real heartbreaker) and the “Double Whammy” which despite warnings still manages to produce groans when the second part comes into view. The run which attracts a small field is run clockwise and anti-clockwise in alternate years and is followed by a BBQ (and a beer) for those who enjoy the post run de-brief.

A number of Striders will be heading over for an enjoyable Saturday morning. If you are interested let Stan know so that we can car pool.
