2008 Hydro Tasmania Three Peaks Race    

Fri, 21 Mar 2008 at 01:00 to Sat, 21 Mar 2009

In 1989 a group of five enthusiasts introduced to Australia a race that has become world renowned as one of the great challenge sports known as the Hydro Tasmania Three Peaks Race. It is a four day test of sailing skill and running endurance around Tasmania's scenic East Coast that will celebrate 20 years of this competition.

The Race starts on Good Friday (21st March 2008), at Beauty Point north of Launceston, on the Tamar River and finishes in Hobart on the Derwent River.

During the race, teams of two runners have to complete three marathon-length runs which include scaling Mt. Strzelecki, on Flinders Island in Bass Strait, Mt. Freycinet, at Coles Bay on Tasmania's East Coast, and Mt. Wellington in Hobart.

The course, which comprises about 133 km of running and 620 km of sailing, is testing and passes through some of Australia's most rugged and beautiful scenery.
