Welcome to the third annual Compass Club North event!
The Compass Club provides a once in a lifetime experience - a chance to complete a full marathon on each of Australia's northern, southern, eastern, western and central compass points.
This will not be your normal road race however - You will be challenged mentally and physically! Australia's most testing elements will be on display - humidity, beach running, trail running, steep hills and cool temperatures. These events are not for the faint hearted or under prepared.
The Compass Club series kicked off at Australia's most Southerly point - Tasmania's South Coast Track in May 2017. Competitors encountered chilly winds, sprawling
plains, rocky cliffs and lengthy boardwalks amongst some of Australia's
most stunning landscapes.
Alice Springs Larapinta Trail played host to the second Compass Club event in June 2017, a journey to Australia's red centre and challenging Larapinta Trail.
Be prepared to encounter wild and rugged conditions in the race to Australia's northern most point, the Cape York Peninsula. Starting just outside of Bamaga Airport, 42km competitors will face a mixture of road and dirt running through barren planes and rainforest on your way to the finish line at Australia's northern most point. 21km will start halfway down Pajinka Road and also finish at The Tip!
