Big Red Run

Wednesday, 27 June 2018 to Monday, 2 July 2018

Birdsville, Simpson Desert, QLD

Run/Walk Off Road/Trail Multi Day / Stage Race

Come to the Outback, take on the Simpson Desert - are you up for it? Australia's only 250km multi-day desert race is returning again in 2018.

2018 was the last running of this event; it will not be run again.

Choose from the 250km or 150km race options - both offer the adventure of a lifetime, varied running terrain, campsite camaraderie and the ultimate challenge.

The event is run by The Born to Run Foundation, which is a registered Health Promotion Charity. It undertakes a range of activities to raise funds to contribute towards research efforts to find a cure for Type 1 diabetes.

In addition the Foundation intends to have a strong focus on implementing real and tangible initiatives that will help those with diabetes and depression improve their health and fitness, assisting them in reversing the adverse impacts of these diseases.
