I've run 72 marathons and this is one of my favourites. Everything exceeded my expectations - the quality of the medals, the gift bags, the signage at the start/finish line, using a drone to video runners, enthusiastic volunteers and very well stocked aid stations - it was all top notch. You put on a world-class race, so thank you.

G'Day, welcome to the Kangaroo Island Marathon.

Locals call it 'Ki'. Kangaroo Island is only a 14km ferry ride off the coast of South Australia and a 90-minute drive from the beautiful city of Adelaide voted one of the top 10 cities in the world by Lonely Planet. Ki is home to native Australian wildlife, organic award winning food & wine, private beaches and soaring cliffs, a spirited local 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. Runners will 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, a trail run into Snake Lagoon, 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. This is a premium running experience available to a maximum of 500 runners each year.  If you're searching for an adventure then Kangaroo Island is for you.
