G'Day, welcome to the Kangaroo Island Marathon.
Locals call it 'Ki'. Kangaroo Island is a 14km ferry ride off the coast of South Australia and a 90-minute drive from the beautiful city of Adelaide. Ki is home to an abundance of native Australian wildlife, organic award winning food & wine, pristine beaches and soaring cliffs, a spirited community of artists and farmers, and breath-taking ocean sunsets.
The course route is located in the remote south-west corner of Flinders Chase National Park. Be inspired by deviating and undulating roads that cut through dense forest, an exposed coastal section with views of the powerful Southern Ocean, a loop that travels by historic landmarks such as Cape de Couedic Lighthouse and Admirals Arch, and a zig-zag boardwalk leading to the iconic Remarkable Rocks.
The Kangaroo Island Marathon is a destination marathon that showcases one of Australia’s best kept secrets. If you're searching for adventure, for those 'goose bump moments' in life, then this island is for you.
