Big Red Run Experience

The whole Big Red Run experience for me started when my running buddy Sally and I started our fundraising a year ago. Such an amazing opportunity to raise money for an awesome charity and raise awareness of T1D.

The actual event itself was nothing short of awesome. I had never participated in anything bigger than a 65km event previously so this was huge in comparison. From start to finish everything was very well organised. The volunteers and race crew did an amazing job. Nobody was left feeling that they weren't welcome, or that they weren't good enough. What a totally amazing location for a totally amazing & life changing event.

If you want a big challenge in life this is for you.. you will do it and you will love it... if you are not sure then volunteer, find out what all the fuss is about :)

The Big Red Run will always be to me the event that made me stop and re-evaluate my life and learn to live my life to its full potential.

What will it do for you?
