The Great Kanku-Breakaways Marathon and fun run, is an outback running experience like no other.

Held in the spectacular Kanku-Breakaways Conservation Park, near Coober Pedy, South Australia, the race starts at the main lookout, Kanku Pulka.

Competitors will travel down from the escarpment, through the spectacular coloured hills of the breakaways country, onto the moon plain and alongside the dingo fence.

The event includes:
- 42.2km marathon
- 21.1km half marathon
- 10km fun run
- 5km dash
- 2.3km kids fun run (under 12s)

Bikes, dogs and prams are allowed.

Supporters and family members can watch race progress from the start/finish hub, view the exhibits, enjoy the free National Reconciliation Week barbecue and soak up the atmosphere of this special place.

It's more than just a race. Competitors can stay in iconic Coober Pedy for a few days and extend their running experience into a short holiday.

With opportunities to get underground, noodle for some opals, take a mine tour and check out some art, there is so much to see and do.

And with a chartered bus service for competitors from Adelaide to Coober Pedy, we've made getting to the event super easy.

Due to current advice on public gatherings, please contact the host of this event to confirm it is proceeding as planned.
