The GREAT Breakaways Marathon travels from the Breakaways, along the Dog Fence, down Kempe Road (road to Oodnadatta) and finishes at the town oval where it wraps up with an event on the oval with food, drinks, community stalls and presentations.

Participants can either walk, run or ride the distance as a personal challenge or as a group completing a portion of the distance together, doing either 5, 10, 15, 21 or the full 42km (can only walk to 21km). Participants are required to pay an entry fee.

The Breakaways Marathon will be run on 10 June 2017 so if anyone would like to participate or volunteer in this event or would like more information, please contact Duncan At District Council of Coober Pedy on (08) 8672 4600 during office hours or email dccp@cpcouncil.sa.gov.au
