The H&R Block Three Peaks Race is a non-stop offshore sailing and endurance running event.
The event, which is held each year at Easter, starts at Beauty Point, travels to Flinders Island before making its way down Tasmania's East Coast to Coles Bay and on to the finish line at Hobart.
Along the way, running teams scale Mount Strzelecki, Mount Freycinet and Mount Wellington, while sailing teams tackle the state's unpredictable seas.
This year the annual race will start on Good Friday, March 29, 2013.
This iconic Tasmanian event has been held in Tasmania since 1989 and attracts elite sportspeople to its ranks and large crowds at various locations along the way.
Teams of six persons, usually four sailors and two specialist long distance runners, compete in either the monohull and multihull division.
The race is organised by a dedicated and highly competent team of volunteers that professionally manage the high-profile event.
