Big Red Run Experience

I joined big red for the sheer challenge of it, such a unique event in a glorious part of Australia. The event communication was fantastic, always knowing what was expected and asking questions was easy.

The event was difficult, and I fully expected that, from the rough gibber plains to the long soft dunes. The fact that getting up each day to go again was easy was surprising. Pain, heat and the inevitable weariness were nothing to get through, the other competitors and support were incredible!

The most memorable moment was coming in, late at night on day 5. Everyone still up to cheers, support medical staff ready with blankets and hot chocolate was all I needed.

My team was very important, chat through the day with, but even without them the other competitors were all energetic and friendly to be around.

Although I won't be there next year I will definitely be back!
