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

The annual Park and Street Champs kick off this month, with the qualifying rounds starting on Tues Feb 16.  There are 7 qualifiers across all Summer Series, including Geelong and Macedon.  The Big Event is on Monday February 29, on the Gladeswood Spur map in Mulgrave.  We offer categories for Runners and Power Walkers, Male and Female, in a range of age groups.

If you wish to qualify to compete in the Final, you need to:

– be a member of an orienteering club

– complete at least 6 StreetO events this season

– compete on the appropriate course for your age group in one of the Qualifying events

– use a BLUE PRINT control card during the Qualifying event/s, to indicate your availability on Finals night

Click here for details, or pick up an orange flyer at events.

It's also time to start thinking about the Course Setter of the Year.  To nominate a course, simply provide a copy of the map, along with the course setter's name, to Margi or Debbie.  Eligible courses are from the beginning of March 2015 to the end of February 2016.  We'll pass these over to our adjudicator.  This prestigious award will be announced on our final Wednesday night, March 16, along with series prizes, Millennium Club milestones (8 new Legends this year!) and the Champs medallions.
