The Coopers Kangaroo Island Cup Day - the big one! Join a crowd of around 5,000 people trackside to celebrate all that is great about country racing as the best horses from far and wide race for the Coopers Kangaroo Island Cup.
Dress to impress for the Fashions of the Field for your chance to represent the Island at the Fashion at The Races
competition in Adelaide, and enjoy a range of entertainment throughout the day.
The Kangaroo Island Marathon has been created to showcase one of Australia’s best kept secrets. The premium tour packages offer visitors an immersive and intimate journey to every corner of the island. Enjoy executive ocean view hotel accommodation,
coach and ferry transfers, hosted day trips, meals, race entry, and an exciting range of optional add-on experiences.
The course route is located in the remote south-west corner of Flinders Chase National Park, starting and finishing at the visitors centre. Be inspired by deviating and undulating roads that cut through dense forest, an exposed coastal section with views of the powerful Southern Ocean, a loop that travels by historic landmarks such as Cape de Couedic Lighthouse and Admirals Arch,
and a zig-zag boardwalk leading to the iconic Remarkable Rocks.
