Orange Running Festival

Westfund Health Insurance team members in Orange have had a fantastic weekend at the Orange Running Festival. This is Westfund’s first year as a sponsor for the 10km run.

“The vibe was so great!” said Westfund Regional Manager – Central West NSW Nicole Hilliard.

“Other runners, spectators were cheering along everybody that crossed the finish line.

“There was a team called Achilles who are a team of blind runners who ran with their own guides and they completed the 10km run, it was honestly so inspirational to see,” she said.

Westfund were on hand with a stall near the finish line of the 10km, well stocked with water, apples, sunscreen, mints and more for the hardworking competitors. Some even took up the 10km challenge, with four staff members completing the race.

Westfund would like to extend their congratulations to the Orange Running Festival Committee on such a successful event, as well as the competitors who came from far and wide to participate.

“I met international runners who were in Australia and decided to fly to Orange and participate in the Orange Running Festival,” said Nicole.

“They said Orange was so lovely and we had great food.”

“I met other people from Sydney and Armidale, Dubbo; there were runners from all over who ran at this event,” she said.
