Big Red Run Experience

I did the 150 km Little Red Run in 2017 and it was the first organised event I'd ever done.

I wasn't sure what to expect as a plodder at an event with so many amazing athletes, but found it to be a wonderful experience.

The event was extremely well organised, the volunteers and crew were so lovely and supportive and the camaraderie among the competitors was seriously special.

The Simpson Desert is beautiful and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this event to absolutely everyone.

It is a challenge but it is achievable and it is so worth it. We raised over $150,000 for JDRF this year and I'm so grateful to have been a part of it.
