The design of the course route where runners regularly passed by each other in opposite directions built a great sense of camaraderie, especially in the tough sections when the hills and weather really tested us. Loved every minute.

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.
