Without a doubt the best event ever run, and we've run a fair few hundred. Scenery, wildlife, friendliness, volunteers, organisation, weather....everything was 101% perfect.  Forget those big city marathons, this will be our annual pilgrimage now. Roll on next year.

G'Day, welcome to Kangaroo Island.  

Over the past 5 years we have welcomed runners from 21 countries and every state in Australia.  We are a boutique destination marathon that offers a limited number of race registrations to ensure our runners have a world-class running experience.  

Kangaroo Island is Australia's best kept secret, only a 14km ferry ride off the coast of South Australia and a 90-minute drive from the beautiful city of Adelaide which has been voted one of the top 10 cities in the world by Lonely Planet. Kangaroo Island is home to native Australian wildlife, organic award winning food & wine, private beaches and rustic trails, a spirited local community of artisans, and breath-taking ocean views.
