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

You have to love a course that still has you puzzling over it right up till the last control.  Chris dangled a nice bunch of controls that were not too far away, and they clearly beckoned - but I needed 9 controls - and of course there was a lovely loop of 8.  So I sweated at great length at which 3 of 10, 5, 17, 8, 9, 18 or 20 I should get.  The answer never did become clear (the best courses never do).  From all accounts, everyone else had similar dilemmas.

Bruce made it two wins from two starts, returning ahead of Peter H, Paul Ian and Colin.  The fierce competition on B continued with James prevailing over Tim, Steven, Lanita and Bruce. Janine, Brett, David, Andrew and Dennis were fastest on C course.  Jonathan, Ewen, me, Matt and Murray were back first on D, while Melanie returned ahead of Pat on E.  Len's score of 61 points was enough for a win ahead of Mark, Ron, Garry and Muriel, making her first top five appearance.

Overall, everyone is still in single divisions, but expect that to change shortly.  Meanwhile, Paul, Geoff and Rick lead A course, with Peter a smidgeon ahead on averages but two events in arrears.  Tim, Steven and Bruce are in front on B course, but the 100s have been spread around so it's all very close.  C course has Brett, Prue and Robert on top, with Janine leading the averages.  I'm leading D course from Jenelle and Pam, but Carolyn has a perfect score from her four events. Pat leads Melanie on E, but their average is the same, so it will be interesting to see where that finishes up.  Ron, Bernie and Dave lead PW, with Dave highest on average.

See you next Wednesday at Burnley Maze - please make sure you park as per parking signs on Yarra Boulevard.
