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

Wattle View

Saturday, 19 August 2017

This map is neatly divided by the creek, which marks the boundary between the oh so gentle undulations of the south, and the oh so brutal contours of the north. Course setter Alicia certainly made it worthwhile to do the climbing, while still giving the "flat earthers" like me plenty to be getting on with.  This map also has some streets on odd angles, making it one to keep focused on at all times.

The winner on A course was Peter, although the top 10 runners got the lot.  Next were Steven, Ian, Andrew and Colin.  Peter became the 6th different winner in a series where no-one has been able to dominate.  On B, Nick and Tim both scored 61, with Nick having the edge on speed to claim victory; Jay, Bruce and Ian were next. Tony won PW with 59 points, three ahead of nearest rival Dave; Helen, Mark and Ros were not far behind.

It's been two weeks since we checked in on overall scores, and we are almost half way through.  Ian has been the most consistent on A1, and has a good lead, with Paul and Steven tied for second, and Tim the big threat but one event behind the pack.  Martin leads A2 from Rick and Hugh, though Andrew is slightly ahead of everyone on average. Roger is still out in front on A3, Stuart is still second, and Ray third, with Vanessa showing some good form as well.  B1 remains unchanged for now with Tim leading Bruce and Peter D, but expect a shakeup as Nick catches up; Ian and Jay are also on strong averages.  Changes have occurred on B2 where Greg now leads, three points ahead of Pete, with me hanging on to third but under threat from several quarters. On B3, Libby has built a nice lead over John.

PW1 sees Dave well and truly in control, at least until Tony catches up - then, game on!  Helen is second and Mark third.  Bernie has moved to top spot on PW2 ahead of Ilze, and Lyn has nudged Barry out of third by one point.  Noel looks unstoppable on PW3, Mike is still second and Pat is still third.  On PW4, Suzanne is still in front, Marc has moved up to second, and Keith is third.

See you next Wednesday at Ringwood Wilds.
