Australia's newest Iron Distance race comes to Kangaroo Island, from November 24-26 2017.

There’s less than three months to go before Australia's newest Iron Distance race comes to Kangaroo Island, from November 24-26 2017.

This will be one of the most scenic and fastest races in the world and there is something for all ages and abilities.

As well as the races, there will be an outdoor cinema, a colour run, live amusements, music, and of course, food and beverages, culminating in an awards ceremony and after party on Monday November 27.

Kangaroo Island businesses are being asked to consider the implications for them as KI will play host to a large influx of visitors during that time, particularly the week before the event and the week after, as competitors and their families from the mainland and overseas take advantage of KI’s wonderful wildlife, parks and beaches to take a family holiday.

The General Manager of Events People (the organisers), Scott Hollow commented, “We have conducted extensive research and determined what we think the multisport athlete in the future is looking for, including new locations, new experiences for the athlete and their families and reintroducing old race formats but in a more exciting way.”

“Kangaroo Island Sufferfest won’t be just a race, but a destination for athletes and their families to enjoy not just a great course but one of Australia’s great holiday locations.”

Volunteers for this exciting event will be needed to help give out water bottles and help competitors and visitors, and you can register now on the website.
