Have an outback experience like no other, when you enter the GREAT Kanku-Breakaways Marathon and Fun Run in the spectacular Kanku-Breakaways Conservation Park.

Located in the world's Opal Capital, Coober Pedy (Umoona), in South Australia's Far North, the Kanku-Breakaways Conservation Park provides a unique setting for an event of this kind - with distances for all ages and abilities, including cycling options.

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 infamous dog fence (once 9600kms, now only 5300km).

If your family and friends aren't running with you, we invite them to 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.

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 the generosity of 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 Half-Marathon.
