The Peak2Park event will proceed rain, hail or shine unless there is an extreme weather event, in which case an alert will be issued via this website and the Peak2Park Toowoomba Facebook page.
Peak2Park was established in 2005 when a group of like-minded individuals came together with a vision to develop an annual fun run/walk. Peak2Park is an independent not-for-profit organisation supported by local people looking to encourage Toowoomba and the district to participate in exercise while raising funds for local charities.
Peak2Park makes the most of Toowoomba's scenic parks and gardens by beginning at the beautiful Picnic Point on the scenic rim of the Great Dividing Range and finishing at lovely Lake Annand, with its wide expanses of lawn.
Since the first Peak2Park in March 2006, it has attracted over 50,000 participants and volunteers and raised close to $500 000 for local charities. The event is an ongoing success because of the continuing involvement and support of families, schools, local businesses and volunteers.
