Do runners get discounted ferry transfers?

Yes, registered runners can access 10% off ferry transfers. The promo code will be sent to you after you have registered for the event. 

Where should I stay?

We recommend the Ozone Hotel in Kingscote; a historic hotel featuring a range of accommodation from family rooms to heritage standard, executive sea views, or self-contained apartments and penthouses. The Ozone is the official 'race village' and headquarters for the Kangaroo Island Marathon.  

What is the refund policy?

Our registrations are non-refundable but 100% fully transferable. Runners have the option to transfer their registration to a friend or family member, or to a future event. You must communicate your intention to transfer in writing prior to the event date. 

What is the cancellation policy?

The decision to cancel the event will be made by the Race Director in consultation with the Chief Medical Officer.  The cancellation policy is based on 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 services cannot operate in the days prior to the event date.  

What is the cut-off time for the marathon?

The marathon starts at 7:30am and the park must re-open to the general public from 2:30pm. 

The cut-off time is 7 hours.

How many drink stations are available to runners?

4 drink stations are available to runners travelling in both directions (equivalent to 8 stations for marathon runners). Each station serves water and electrolytes, and are supported by local volunteer sports clubs and community groups. 

Where can I park my car?

Vehicles can be parked in the new visitors information centre or on the road verge of West End Highway outside the main entrance to Flinders Chase National Park.

Both options are walking distance to the start-finish line.
