2021 South Australian Tourism Awards - Bronze Medal Sustainable Tourism - Quality Tourism Accredited Business


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.

Welcome to Karta Pintingga Country.

The Kangaroo Island Oats Running Festival was established in 2015 and has welcomed runners from 22 countries and every state in Australia. The course route carves its way through the heart of a shutdown Flinders Chase National Park. Runners will be inspired by post-bushfire regenerating flora and fauna, undulating roads and trails, an exposed coastal section with views to the powerful Southern Ocean and a zig-zag boardwalk leading to the iconic Remarkable Rocks.
