G'Day, welcome to Kangaroo Island.
Over the past 5 years we have welcomed runners from 21 countries and every state in Australia to run the Kangaroo Island Marathon, Half Marathon & 10K at Flinders Chase National Park – the western end of the island. The KI Oats WILDROO Ultra Marathon has been designed to showcase Dudley Peninsula – the eastern end of the island. This is our inaugural event and we encourage runners to register early to avoid disappointment as registrations are limited.
The WILDROO offers runners the option of a 30K or 60K race distance. The course route starts and finishes in the quaint township of Penneshaw. A sunrise hill climb transports runners to the top of Dudley Peninsula providing panoramic ocean views to mainland South Australia. Runners will head south crossing over Chapman River and looping around Cape Willoughby lighthouse, before a detour across coastal farm trails that pass by Antechamber Bay. The final stretch descends a historic tree lined canopy called Binney's track, returning runners to the local footy oval where they'll be greeted by family and friends.
