The Big Red Run is an exciting, week long challenge enabling runners and walkers to experience unchartered parts of the Simpson Desert in Outback Queensland. Based out of Birdsville, the Big Red Run will raise funds for JDRF to fund the best and most promising Type 1 diabetes research.

Two distance options are available over the 6 days - the Big Red 250km or the Big Red 150km. Both are challenging and equally rewarding! Runners and walkers of Big Red Run are promised a true outback Australian adventure, an experience of a lifetime and an adventure they will never forget - sleeping under the stars, making new friends, running through some of the most beautiful desert landscapes, and being entertained at camp each night viewing photos from the day's adventure. The Birdsville Hotel awaits runners at the finish line, for a beer and celebration after a hard week's work!
