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

Bennetswood

Friday, 25 July 2014

With temperatures slowly on the increase, and no rain threatening, a good crowd turned out to Bennetswood. Starting almost at the bottom of two hills, the only way out was up.  The western end of the map was more advantageous points-wise, but also had more contours to deal with.  Course setter Ron wasn't giving away too many easy points, making us work legs and brains.

Only 10 of the 40 A course competitors earned a full quota of 70 points - despite being a small map, it was a tough one to clean up.  Bryan was first to do so, followed by Alex, Simon, Colin and Ted.  On B course, Bruce scored a very impressive 68 points to win easily from Jay and Christine.  Tim's 3 point late penalty wasn't enough to prevent him from taking the win over Ian, Graham and Ewen.  On PW, Steven was comfortable in victory over Len, Pat and Geoff.

Three weeks in, and the divisions are now in place. A1 is headed by Simon R, Ted and Ian.  Simon S leads A2 from Dave and Jim. On A3, it's Josie, Mark B and Ray, and on A4, the top three are Margi, Matthew and Dale.  On B1, Peter leads from Dennis and Bruce, while on C1, Ian is in the lead from Ewen and Peter K. I'm leading C2 from Pete and Noel.  Steven heads PW1 from Len, with Ron and Ros tied for third. Geoff is in front on PW2 from Ian and Bernie S, while Gwennyth leads PW3 from Mike and Yanting.  PW4 sees another tie, with Schon in first place, then Suzanne and Merrill on the same points in equal second.

See you next week at Wattle View.
