What is the event cancellation policy?

The decision to cancel the Kangaroo Island Marathon will be made by the Race Director in consultation with the Chief Medical Officer.  The cancellation policy makes reference to inclement weather conditions, defined by air temperatures below 2°C or above 35°C and wind speeds in excess of 100km/hour. Please note the event will not be cancelled if ferry and air travel services cannot operate.  

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.
