The Simpson Desert Ultra is one of Australia’s newest ultra marathons taking place in the heart of the Australian Outback. With distances of 160, 80, 42 and 20 kilometres, there is something for those new to the ultra-scene, as well as those more accustomed to the gruelling nature of such events.

The event takes place near Birdsville in south west Queensland on the edge of the Simpson Desert and traverses a variety of terrains. From towering sand dunes to rocky gibber plains, it will surely test the limits of each participant and allow them to immerse themselves in a truly unique part of the Australian landscape. Participants can be assured of a high level of care and safety and will no doubt remember the Simpson Desert Ultra for its big heart and vast spaces.
