What is your policy regarding COVID refunds?

Our registrations are non-refundable but fully transferable. Runners have the option to transfer their registration to a friend or family member, or to a future marathon event on Kangaroo Island. Provided you have communicated your intention to transfer in writing prior to the event date we will always honour a registration. 

What time does the race start?

The start time for all race distances is 7:30am sharp. We recommend arriving early at the park entrance to ensure you allow time for the bus shuttle service from the park entrance to the start/finish line, collection of registration number, and toilet stop etc.  

What is the cut-off time?

Flinders Chase National Park will re-open to the general public from 3:00pm.  The cut-off time is 7.5 hours.

Alternatively, runners can collect their race bib numbers from 6:00am at our registration desk, located next to the start/finish line, on the morning of the race.

Runners can access toilets at the start-finish line, bunker hill lookout in the middle of the course, and at both the Remarkable Rocks and Cape de Couedic lighthouse.

What is the event cancellation policy?

Please note the event will not be cancelled if ferry and air travel services cannot operate.
