Get an outback running experience like no other. Enter the Great Kanku-Breakaways Marathon and fun run in the spectacular Kanku-Breakaways Conservation Park in South Australia.
Starting at the main lookout in the park - Kanku Pulka (meaning Big Shelter) - you will run down from the escarpment, through the spectacular coloured hills of the breakaways country, onto the moon plain and alongside the dingo fence.
If your family and friends aren't running with you, they can watch your progress from the lookout, grab a bite to eat or drink, wander around the stalls, learn about local artists and participate in an art class.
Free buses leaving Coober Pedy will shuttle competitors and visitors to and from the park.
As part of National Reconciliation Week, the event will bring entrants, local community and visitors together over a free bbq.
The Kanku-Breakaways Conservation Park is an Aboriginal owned park, managed by a majority traditional owner co-management board.
Come and explore Coober Pedy and the outback.
Thanks to people who love the sport of running, juniors U16 from Coober Pedy and surrounding areas may run FREE in the 10km, 5km and Mini Bolt events or pay a discounted $5 entry to the 21.1km Halfie.
