Whether you’re keen to get the family out for some fresh air or a bit of exercise, or you’re a competitive runner, or are inspired to raise money for a great cause, don’t miss this year’s funtastic 2023 Run for the Hills!

The event will be run entirely within the grounds of Bella Vista Farm, on three courses presented in a cross-country format, almost all on grass. Courses will be marked out and Castle Hill Rotary Club will provide marshals so you remain on the right track.

Run for the Hills won’t be conducted as a race – however, electronic timing facilities will be available to enable our more competitive entrants to record your actual running time on the course of your choice.

Free parking will be available on Bella Vista Farm. Toilets and rest facilities are located within the grounds and there will be First Aid facilities staffed by qualified RFS team members.

This year there will be coffee providers on-site and snacks available too, plus a host of fun stuff including RFS fire trucks for the little ones to check out, with more attractions currently being negotiated.
