COMPASS CLUB MEMBERS

This page introduces you to each of the current Compass Club Members -

For someone who only took up running just four years ago, Pip has compiled an impressive running resume in a short space of time.
An 'experience' seeker and up for an adventure, Pip combines an extremely taxing professional career with volunteer surf lifesaving, travel and is always on the lookout for the next 'story' destination.

Pip may be small in stature but her mental strength and physical stamina has carried her across some amazing finish lines, including the Comrades Marathon in South Africa, Melbourne, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and the Cairns Marathons to name just a few.

Pip becomes the first female ever to have completed a 42km marathon in the humidity of Cape York, the polar conditions of Cockle Creek and the endless red sand of the Lambert Centre. That's three of Australia's compass points smashed, only east and west remain.......

Steve becomes the first male to complete marathons in the humidity of Cape York, the polar conditions of Cockle Creek and the endless red sand of the Lambert Centre of Australia. That's three of Australia's compass pints knocked off, only East and West to go....
