Big Red Run Teams

Getting a team together for the Big Red Run is a great idea. There is nothing like sharing this unique challenge and outback adventure with a group of friends or colleagues.

In addition to this, team entries are cheaper per person than individual entries. For a team of 3 the entry fees are discounted by 10%, however when you get a team of 4 or more together you will each pay just $1,500 per person, which is $700 less than an individual entry.

How do Teams work in the Big Red Run?

Teams are made up of 3 or more people.

There are 2 categories of teams in Big Red Run.

  1. Normal team, where all team members run and walk together over the entire 250km course.
  2. Relay team, where team members can take it in turns to cover the course.


How does a Relay Team work?.

A relay team is a fantastic way to enjoy the experience with your teammates without everyone in the team being required to cover the whole 250km course. This is an ideal introduction to a multi-day event, and is also ideal for corporate groups.

Like a normal team, a relay team is made up of 3 or more people.

All members of the team must start the event together and run or walk the first day from Birdsville Hotel to Big Red Dune.

From days 2 to 5, team members can take it in turns to cover the course, breaking the course down into approximately 20km sections. As many or few team members can then cover each of these sections. At least one team member must cover each section.

The organisers will arrange to Helicopter or 4WD your team members from the campsites to the changeover point for the day, and return the runner/s who have completed their section back to the campsite, to await their running team member/s.

On days 2 and 3 there will be one changeover point at approximately 21km.

On day 4 there will be one changeover point at approximately 15km (as the total course that day is approximately 30km)

On day 5 there will be 3 changeover points at the 21, 42 and 63km points, meaning the long day can be broken down into 4 sections which members of the team can take in turn to cover.

On day 6, the Final Day which is approximately 8km finishing back at Birdsville Hotel, again all team members must run and finish the event together on this last day.
