Kangaroo Island Marathon

Since 2015 KI is home to the Kangaroo Island Oats Kangaroo Island  Marathon. We have welcomed runners from 22 different countries and every state in Australia. The lucky runners course route is through the beautiful but physically hard Flinders Chase.  The runners get to experience the beauty of the island and have seen the growth post bushfire. Going past iconic parts of KI like Remarkable Rocks and parts of the beautiful Southern Ocean.
