Big Red Run Experience

The 250k Big Red run that I participated in this year enabled me  to fulfil one of my bucket list items. Being to compete and complete an iconic Australian ultra. The journey was made special as my wife also did the event. The early comradeship was enhanced by the epic and interesting bus trip from Adelaide to Birdsville. The event itself was well run with my safety placed first and at no stage did I feel alone. This enabled me to enjoy the experience the Simpson desert and the challenging outback conditions. Camp facilities and conditions where second to none and the family group of competitor and volunteers enhanced my journey.

I come away a winner and with new found lifelong friends whom I could share there and my journey.
