Orange Running Festival


8th & 9th March 2025


8th & 9th March 2025

Join us on the 8th and 9th of March 2025 for the Orange Running Festival and enjoy a weekend away in the renowned food and wine region of Orange in Central West NSW.

The festival caters for all ages and abilities with a distance for everyone.

On Saturday we kick off with our 2K Dash events (Women’s, Men’s, Secondary School, Primary School and Community) leading into our Sunday distance program with the 5K, 10K, Half Marathon and Marathon along a scenic, all sealed, gently undulating course in the cool climate of Orange. 

Our Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K, and 5K courses have been World Athletics/AIMS certified and are eligible for earning ranking points, and for championships and events requiring qualification times.

Orange Running Festival supports several community organisations in the Orange area, including the RFS, Scouts, Cycling without Age, Running for Premature Babies and local schools.  These organisations also help make the event a success each year by volunteering their services.


Orange Running Festival has a whole new design for 2024! 

If you liked our new 2023 race shirts and singlets, you’ll love the 2024 look.  Grab your ORF 2024 shirt or singlet, and you’ll be the coolest runner around.  Check out our Merchandise Page for all the details.

Place your order during the registration process to guarantee availability, with gear available for pickup on event weekend.  Any excess stock may be available for purchase at bib pickup on event weekend.

Supplies will be limited so don’t delay.

The Orange Running Festival acknowledges the traditional owners of the lands where we run, the Wiradjuri Nation, and we pay our respects to the Wiradjuri people for their care and stewardship of these lands.  We pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.  
We commit to treating this land with respect and we ask that our participants do the same when they join us in this truly special place.
