Orange Running Festival



Our 5K event has reached capacity and entries are now closed.  Places are still available in our Marathon and 2K Dash events.

The Orange Family Dental 5K race starts and finishes within the Gosling Creek Reserve.

After completion of part of the internal Gosling Creek loop, exit out onto Forest Road and head in a southerly direction (keeping to the right hand side of the road) to the turn point just short of Buttle Road, return to Gosling Creek Reserve along Forest Road. Upon re-entering Gosling Creek Reserve complete the internal Gosling Creek loop back to the finish line. 

The course is on bitumen sealed roads and paths within Gosling Creek Reserve.  Drink stations are located along the course with both water and sports drink.  Our 5K course has been World Athletics/AIMS certified and is eligible for earning ranking points, and for championships and events requiring qualification times.
