Kangaroo Island Marathon in South Australia

Locals call it "Ki". Kangaroo Island is located 14km off the coast of South Australia and is just 2-hours from the beautiful city of Adelaide. Ki is home to an abundance of native Australian wildlife, organic award winning food & wine, pristine beaches and soaring cliffs, a spirited community of artists and farmers, and breath-taking ocean sunsets.

The Kangaroo Island Marathon has been created to showcase one of Australia's best kept secrets. The premium tour packages offer visitors an immersive and intimate journey to every corner of the island. Enjoy executive ocean view hotel accommodation, coach and ferry transfers, hosted day trips, meals, race entry, and an exciting range of optional add-on experiences.

The course route is located in the remote south-west corner of Flinders Chase National Park. Be inspired by deviating and undulating roads that cut through dense forest, 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.
