G'Day, welcome to the WILDROO Ultra Trail Marathon.
Locals call it 'Ki'. Kangaroo Island is only a 14km ferry ride off the coast of South Australia and a 90-minute drive from the beautiful city of Adelaide voted one of the top 10 cities in the world by Lonely Planet. Ki is home to native Australian wildlife, organic award winning food & wine, private beaches and soaring cliffs, a spirited local community of artists and farmers, and breath-taking ocean sunsets.
The course route for the WILDROO Ultra Trail Marathon is the new wilderness trail which was constructed by the State Government in 2016 at a cost of $5M. This 55km trail passes by some of the most stunning geographic landmarks and inspiring wildlife areas in Australia. Runners will be inspired by deviating and undulating trails that cut through dense forest, an exposed coastal section with views of the powerful Southern Ocean, and a zig-zag boardwalk leading to the iconic Remarkable Rocks.
This is a destination event that showcases one of Australia’s best kept secrets. If you're searching for adventure then Kangaroo Island is for you.
