The Great NOSH Footrace

The Great NOSH Footrace
Event Date: 2022-06-05
The Great NOSH Footrace is Australia's longest running trail run. This year will be the 47th edition with 16km and 22km run options available. Courses start at Lindfield in northern Sydney and finish at Seaforth Oval.

The event has a long history with the orienteering community. It is now conducted as an Orienteering NSW event and raises money for the growth and development of orienteering. It also raises the profile of orienteering amongst trail runners.

Successful and safe conduct of the event relies upon the contribution of approximately 50 volunteers each year. There are a wide variety of roles that require little or no previous experience and also varying time commitments. If you are able to assist in even a small way, ONSW would be very grateful. Please volunteer by emailing

Late Information release -
The Two Creeks track in East Lindfield has been damaged by all the rain over recent months and is presently closed. Unfortunately, it will not reopen before we run the 2022 edition of the NOSH.
We have therefore been working closely with National Parks and Wildlife to develop an alternative route. We have come up with a route that we hope you will enjoy. New course lengths will be very similar but slightly shorter. We expect that your run experience will be very similar. From Davidson Park, runners will head north on a service trail and then return to the Park before crossing under the eastern side of Roseville Bridge and connecting with the Flat Rock Beach Track. From there the route is unchanged.
The start for this year's event will now be at Davidson Park within Garigal National Park. To quote National Parks, Davidson Park has large open grassy areas, free barbecues and a stunning Middle Harbour Creek backdrop. There is plenty of parking as well as amenities within the Park. Note though that there is a vehicle access fee of $8 per vehicle (unless you have a National Parks pass).
Start times remain unchanged.
Transfer bus departure times from Seaforth remain unchanged.
All finish arrangements at Seaforth Oval remain unchanged. Yes, Seaforth Football Club are putting on their barbeque again.

Venue: Middle Harbour, Sydney.
