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? Searching for an outdoor activity the whole family can enjoy together?

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

Wantirna South

Sunday, 21 September 2014

Your intrepid reporter was unfortunately enduring the misery of a week on the Sunshine Coast,clear blue skies, balmy mid 20 degree days, walks along the beach and in the rainforest ... but I digress. It was great to see the rest of you soldiering on in the freezing cold.  Looks like there were some clear victories on Di's course, with Simon taking out A course from Ian and Tim, Jay winning B course by a clear margin over Peter and Christine, Tim blitzing C course ahead of Denis and Peter K, and Tony continuing his dominance of PW, ahead of Steven and Mark.

With only four weeks to go Simon has cemented his place at the top of A1, with a 7 point lead over Bryan and Ian. Paul, Alex and Tim still need to complete 8 events before they will have an impact on the placings.  Things are STILL chopping and changing on A2, where Simon has a solid lead, Rick is now second and Vic third, and Ian is one event away from overhauling them. The A3 lead has also changed again, now it's Mark J in front of Ray and Mark B, while Dale has clawed her way back into a one point lead over Margi on A4, with Matthew still third.  Dennis and Greg are still fending off Jay and Christine on B1, but only just. This one is still open though, as Bruce and Peter are still in the hunt.  On B2, Libby is the only one who could upset Suzy.  Tim is one win away from a clean sweep on C1, but for now Peter K holds the lead, and Ewen remains third in a tightly bunched field.  C2 is completely unchanged for me, Pete, and John, with Noel still just one point out of the placings.

Steven, Mark and Ros still lead PW1 but Tony is flying up the standings with every win.  Ian moved into third on PW2 behind Lyn and Bernie S. PW3 is still headed by Christine, Gwennyth and Mike, but several people could make big moves in the next couple of weeks.  Merrill took back the lead from Suzanne and Erica on a seesawing PW4.
    
See you next week at Mullauna, in Mitcham.
