The Orange Running Festival is owned and operated by the Orange Runners Club. The first Festival was held in 2007 and has grown to be one of the premier Festivals on the running calendar each year. The festival continues to be a big supporter of local charities and businesses and due to the Festivals success makes significant donations each year.

Each race will start and finish within the Gosling Creek Reserve, which is located between Forest, Bloomfield and Bargwanna Roads, Orange (about 6km south of the Orange CBD and just to the south of the Orange Hospital). The following races are on offer in 2022:
