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

Blackburn North

Monday, 24 July 2017

This was a really interesting course set by Steven - most controls were north of Springield Road, eliminating the need to cross a busy road; the handful of controls to the south were only for the brave (or foolhardy).  This map has a street layout that leads to deception - controls can look really close together but in reality be a long way apart.  So there was certainly a lot to think about, and it paid to lay your plans at the beginning.- as opposed to my usual tactic of going to the nearest control, then the next, then the next, until time is almost up.

Andrew was the only runner to score 70 points - Colin, Geoff, Ian and Tim all settled for 67.  You have to start thinking differently when you need to drop controls, so good job by Steven to shake things up a bit.  On B, Tim scored a huge 63, with Bruce and Ian both on 56, and Denise and Graham next best on 50.  Mark topped PW with a score of 55, just in front of Tony and Dave on 54 apiece, and Kay, Ron and Helen on 50.

Everyone has been placed into their divisions, so if you were a winner last series, you've been promoted. Things are very close on A1 with Andrew just in front, Ian right behind in second, and Paul in third, but with Tim, Geoff and Colin all in a bunch just outside the placings.  On A2, Rick and Hugh are tied for first, and Martin is only a point clear of Merv. Vanessa has a nice lead on A3 from Lauris and Stuart. Tim has claimed the early lead on B1 from Ian and Bruce; Graham is out in front of me and Pete on B2; and Libby leads John and Suzy on B3.  PW1 sees Dave in first, Helen second and Mark third. Kay, Lyn and Bernie are the placeholders on PW2, while Noel Mike and Pat are the top three on PW3. Suzanne leads Di and Bev on PW4. 

See you next Wednesday at MitchelHill.
