Orange Running Festival



Registrations for our Primary School Dash are now closed.  Registrations are still open for our 5K until 4pm, Saturday 9th March.

The Race Track Car Wash Primary School Dash course consists of a two kilometre lap of the asphalt Gosling Creek Reserve bike/running track. Participants start near the festival start and finish area and head east following the running and bike path.  The course then turns west to the northwest corner of the reserve.  Runners will then make their way south west, turning toward the water, and then back east to the finish.

The Saturday 2K Dash events feature in our Saturday program including five races, award presentations, food and drink vendors and lucky prize draws.  The event site opens at 3pm with activities starting at 3:50pm.  We encourage participants and spectators to enjoy the afternoon and early evening with us.
