Pat Farmer, best known as the only man who has run continuously from the North Pole to the South Pole, is a multiple world record holder for endurance running. He has also run around and across Australia, New Zealand, India, Vietnam and North America. Pat served 8 years as a Member of Australia’s Parliament, with 3 years as Parliamentary Secretary for Education, Science and Training. Winner of ‘Achiever of the Year’ (2000), awarded by Australian Prime Minister John Howard and National Geographic's Adventurer of the Year (2012), Pat has also raised millions of dollars for causes during his 30 year running career, including Lifeline, Cancer Council, Australian Red Cross, Diabetes Australia and the Nani Khali Foundation for education of India's girl child.
Pat's can-do attitude translates to everything he does in life and he prides himself on "getting the job done". The respect he has earned from the highest levels of government both in Australia and internationally, along with sporting organisations, charities and all facets of the community, comes from his proven ability to make the impossible happen, time and time again.

In January 2012, Pat Farmer accomplished one of the greatest feats in human history. He'd arrived at the South Pole after the longest and arguably most dangerous run ever made, a physical and mental triumph that put him in the company of the world's greatest adventurers—Sir Edmund Hillary, Robert Falcon Scott, and Thor Heyerdahl.
