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

Highbury Hill

Thursday, 23 April 2015

As we drove to the start, we passed "Big Messy Hole in the Ground" (I'm sure you all know where I mean) and said "I'm NOT going down there this time.  I have uttered these words countless times, and someone always goes and puts a 5 pointer in there - so, mustering my courage and sighing at my lack of willpower, I break my promise.  So it was a great relief to see that Katherine had kept it control free!  In fact, if 13 controls or less was enough, there was no need to even cross Highbury Road.

Of course most of the A runners had time to venture south.  First back was Simon, then Bryan, Ian, Alex and Colin.  On B course, Ian's score of 60 was enough to win, with Tim second on 58, Steven third on 57, then Jay and Christine rounding out the top five.  Mark continued his PW domination with 61 points, The Girls and Sandy scored 51, and Len and Robert scored 60.

We're now one third of the way through the series. Simon retains the lead on A1 from Ian, and Bryan has moved to third.  Roger has taken top spot on A2, Rick has moved to second, and Peter M is now third, only two points in arrears.  Katherine still leads A3, Ray has moved up to second, and Geoff has moved to third. Suzanne is ahead of Robyn and Eric on A4.

No change on B1 for Ian, Steven and Tim, nor on B2 for Peter K, Dennis and Greg. I traded places with Pete on B3 with Vaughan still third.  Mark's perfect run of 100s continues on PW1, putting him firmly at the top, ahead of Len, who is just one point in front of Lauris.  Robert has drawn away on PW2, to lead from Helen and Bernie.  Kay leads PW 3 from Gwennyth, with Allan moving to third, while Malcolm, Dale and Mike lead PW4.

See you next week at Mitchelhill, in Oakleigh East.
