Join in the festivities on the 9th and 10th of March for the Westfund Health Insurance Orange Running Festival.

This festival welcomes participants of all ages and skill levels, offering a variety of distances to suit everyone’s preferences.

The event begins on Saturday with an exhilarating 2K Dash, featuring categories for Women, Men, Secondary School, Primary School, and the broader Community. The excitement continues into Sunday with the range of distance events, including the 5K, 10K, Half Marathon, and Marathon. Participants will enjoy a picturesque, gently undulating course that is fully sealed and takes full advantage of Orange’s cool climate.

The Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K, and 5K routes are certified by World Athletics/AIMS, making them valid for earning ranking points and qualifying for championships and other competitive events.
