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


Friday, 29 August 2014

The fog descended early and the grass was wet with condensation, even by 7pm.  It was a bit disconcerting to drop from the giddy heights of Bald Hill, and lose ground visibility. Course setter Vic caused consternation at the start when he put all the 5 pointers in a ring.  I started off towards 16, changed my mind and headed for 17, had a rethink and went for 18, and wished I'd begun with 19! Plenty of mental gymnastics required.

The full course was quite short so most of the A runners got the lot, but none quicker than Simon, who snuck in just ahead of Bryan. Warwick, Paul and Ian rounded out the top 5.  Jay had a comfortable win on B course over Steuart and Dennis, while Tim also took an easy victory on C, with Graham and Jenny taking the placings. Not so straightforward on PW, with Tony just ahead of Stephen and Ros.

See you next week in the hills of Doncaster.
