Set entirely in the grounds of the beautiful and historic Bella Vista Farm, the Cross Country Challenge is entirely void of street traffic with plenty of parking amenities available. Whether you’re a seasoned runner or just keen to get out and raise money for a good cause, there’s a course to suit everyone. The Cross Country Challenge is open to participants of all ages and fitness levels, and there’s absolutely no obligation to run. Feel free to jog, walk, skip or hop – as long as you have fun doing it. You can also opt to do as much or as little of the course as you want. It’s entirely up to you!
Plan to stick around after your run, as there will be lots going on throughout the day. Curb your hard-earned hunger with a bacon and egg roll served up by the Bella Vista Hotel, grab a cup of coffee and let the kids enjoy the entertainment. The OBF Pop Up Markets will also be on site as part of the annual Orange Blossom Festival from 8am – 12pm. Don’t forget to stick around for the prize ceremony after the last race is completed!

Important: We recommend you arrive a half hour before your chosen run to register and collect your bib.
Each running course is designed to highlight the beauty of Bella Vista Farm and provide different challenges along the way, including
several short inclines and running through dense tree-filled areas. There will be four drink stops stationed throughout the race course so you can make sure you stay
hydrated the whole time. Please refer to the map below for locations.
