The Simpson Desert Ultra is a new ultramarathon in 2020, taking place in the heart of the Australian Outback.
With distances of 160km, 80km & 20km, there is something for those new to the ultra-scene, as well as those more accustomed to the gruelling nature of such events.

From towering sand dunes to rocky gibber plains it will surely test the limits of each participant and allow them to immerse themselves in a truly unique part of the Australian landscape. The Simpson Desert Ultra will no doubt be remembered for its big heart and vast spaces.
