Join us at one of outback Australia’s iconic running events – the Great Kanku-Breakaways Marathon, fun run and ride on Saturday 16 May, 2020 (to be confirmed soon).

If you want an outback running experience, this one is for you. Held in the Kanku-Breakaways Conservation Park, the race takes advantage of the spectacular coloured hills of the breakaway country, approximately 30km north of Coober Pedy, South Australia.

Distances are full (42.2), half (21.1), 10km, 5km and kids 2.4km fun run.

Entrants also have the option of registering for a teams event.

Walk, run or ride a bike. Prams and dogs on leads are welcome too.

Why not make a short holiday of it? Spend a few days in Coober Pedy exploring the local area and then head up to the West MacDonnell Ranges near Alice Springs and run in the West Macs Monster Trail Running Festival.

You can’t get a more iconic running holiday than that!
