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

Park and Street - Latest News

Academy Hill

Saturday, 5 September 2015

First up, a very important piece of news from the previous Wednesday, when two more LEGENDS were added to the Millennium Club. Long serving street orienteer Rick Bailes completed his 1000th event to become a LEGEND member (#31) while Adam Scammell became the youngest LEGEND member (#30). Adam takes the honor from Andrew Baker by just a few months. Well done to Rick and Adam.

Academy Hill turned out to be a good opportunity to test my new rain jacket (very good, thanks for asking).  Unfortunately the weather deterred a lot of people so a good chance for the hardy ones to improve their overall scores.  Luckily the shorter courses were able to pick up good points without needing to tackle the eponymous Hill.

Tonight's A course winner was Paul, followed by Bryan, Peter H, Alex and Geoff.  Tim had an easy victory on B course over Peter D, Steven, Graham, and Katherine.  On PW, Andrew and Mark tied for points but Andrew got back first to earn the win, with Lauris, Ian and Pam completing the top five.

After 9 weeks, people are starting to compile the necessary 8 events, and drop their lower scores.  This sees Paul now in first place on A1 ahead of Warwic and Geoff, but I foresee further changes in the not too distant future.  A2 is now led by legend Rick, Arthur, and Vic.  Robert, Mark B and Eric lead A3, while Suzanne, Phil and Pamela are on top of A4.  Steven has moved to the top of B1 ahead of Peter D and Ian, while Peter M, Graham and Reg lead B2, and me, Pete and Pierre lead B3.

Lauris is hanging on to the PW1 lead from Mark and Andrew.  Lyn, Ian and Annie are on top of PW2.  Allan has moved into first on PW3 ahead of Gwennyth and Pat, while Pam, Lara and Linh have retained their placings on PW4.

See you next Wednesday at Macleod.
