Park and Street Orienteering

More Fun Than the Same Old Run

Bored with running the same old block? Tired of trudging on the treadmill? Looking for a new way to give your brain and body a boost? Want to see new places and meet new faces?

Park and Street Orienteering provides the perfect combination of mental and physical exercise. You do not need a compass or any special map reading ability. However, it will test your thinking while giving you a great workout in a friendly, safe, outdoor environment.   Events are held all over Melbourne, all year round.

Our events welcome people of all ages and abilities, and accommodate everyone from the elite sports person to those looking for a good walk to help stay in shape.

Families and friends can participate in groups or individually.  Groups such as schools, scouts, sports or social clubs are very welcome - but please contact us at least a week prior to the event, so we can make sure enough maps are printed.

Printed programs covering all of Melbourne are available at most events. Further information is also available on this website: Want to learn more? Click here

The first event of the Autumn Classic series was held mostly in daylight, though torches were needed if you were returning after about 7:50.  Tina gave us plenty to think about, with a tricky cluster around the start, and enough length for those who like to get their money's worth, without needing to place controls west of the railway line.  Only the top 8 A course runners managed to score a full complement of 70 points, with Andrew returning first, followed by Simon, Paul, Colin and Warwick.  

This year, B course is 45 minutes instead of 50, having been merged with C course to provide more competition.  With over 30 people on the new course, the merge has already proved popular.  However looking at the number of people who copped late penalties, some time management skills might be required!  Tim took the honours with 63 points, nudging out Ian on 60.  They were followed by Andrew and Matt on 57, and Steven on 55.

Meanwhile the Power Walkers resumed battle, and I note some late finishers there as well - but no excuses, as their return time remains 8:05.  Mark notched up his first win with 56 points, ahead of Ron on 52, then Lauris, Brett and Len on 50.

So already it looks like we're in for another 15 week series of close contests and nailbiting finishes.  If you're planning to be a regular part of it, you should purchase a season ticket.  Not only will you save heaps (up to $48 per 30-week series), but you won't have to scrounge around for those gold coins each week.  We'll be selling them for the next two weeks, so look out for the big yellow sign at next Wednesday's event, which is at Camelot Rise in Vermont South.  See you there!
