“The GKI” is one of the Fitzroy Frogs’ marquee events that invites intrepid souls to taste the magic of Great Keppel Island, 14km off the Central Queensland Coast. The course has something for everyone and comes in distances ranging from 9.5km through to the Full Keppel’s 27km. Visit beaches, climb mountains and take in spectacular views. You decide your distance during the event; as long as you are back at the Hideaway by 2pm.
Participants are instructed to carry at least 1L of drinking water, basic nutrition, a mobile phone and a bandage as there are no aid stations out on course. Marshals will be stationed at checkpoints to log your progress.
“Get the family and friends together for this one, you will love it.”
Participants and supporters are encouraged to stay on the island but our special ferry transfer from Rosslyn Bay Harbour will get you to the island 45 mins before the fun begins.
