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 Case of the Invisible Controls - well they were visible on the map, just not on the ground!  Hopefully no-one got too confused by the extras (21-25).  We had a big crowd, a great new start location, and made some new friends - the local Welsh male choir were rehearsing, and they invited us in for a listen afterwards.  Changes to the Aquatic Centre meant more of the big park in the centre was accessible, opening up route choices.  

The top five on A course this week were Bruce, Bryan, Steven, Colin and Ian.  On B, it was Tim, Lanita, Nicholas, Charles, and Andrew.  First to return on C were Tony, Carolyn, Denise, Mark and Asha; while on D it was Ewen, Graham, Colin, Janine, and Suzy.  E course was popular, with Jennelle, Tina, Sienna, Matilda and Charlotte the top five.  Great to see so many Camberwell Grammar students doing really well - will they have the edge they need to repeat their victory in next year's Schools competition?  On PW it was Dave out front with 61 points, ahead of Kay, Helen and Mark all on 59.

Overall we have Bruce in front on A course with no-one yet able to topple him.  Bryan and Steven are second and third, one point apart.  It's a close call on B course with Jay narrowly in front of Tim, and Andrew only a point behind. Newcomer Jan is leading C course from Phil and Gordon. Ewen's winning streak on D continues and he is way out in front, with me and Benjamin the next best.  On PW the leaders are Mark, Helen, and Kay. who moved up to third this week.

Next Wednesday it's back to an old favourite, Wattle Park.  Not only is it a predominantly park map with many challenges, but it's also got trams to play on!
