My first marathon, and what a marathon to choose for my first. Gruelling and challenging hills & trails, fantastic scenery, great support from all runners and volunteers. Thanks for the memories.

G'Day, welcome to Kangaroo Island.    

Over the past 5 years we have welcomed runners representing 21 countries and every state in Australia. The remote location means we cap registrations across all of our race distances including the marathon, half marathon and 10K. We encourage runners to register early to avoid disappointment. 

The course route is located in the remote south-west corner of Flinders Chase National Park. You will be inspired by undulating roads and trails, 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.
