Pip Candrick

Almost 6 years ago Pip was diagnosed with a Brain Tumour. She underwent major brain surgery to have it removed but sadly suffered a brain haemorrhage a couple of weeks later placing her in a critical condition. Throughout her recovery Pip managed to regain strength and has slowly rebuilt her life from scratch. Pip's day to day life now brings many challenges and will never be the same as how it used to be. However during the time of her recovery Pip somehow found trail running and this has helped her heal on so many levels and has now given her a life she is so grateful to have. Pip completed the 50km Ultra-Trail Australia (formally TNF50) in 2015. Pip will be attempting the 100km in 2017.
