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

This map has a split personality - the southern section is alost uniformly flat, while north of FTG Road, there are plenty of hills.  With an even spread of points each side of the divide, that was the main decision.  The Girls gave us plenty of other things to think about, for example, how and when to get 20, 2, 4 and 11 was something that occupied my mind fo much of my 45 minutes.

Simon was again first back on A course, followed by Alex, Colin, Ian and Ted.  On B, the three way battle between Tim, Ian and Steven continued, as they finished in that order; not far behind were Greg and Peter D.  Robyn took out PW with 62 points, scoring the same as Mark and Len, and breaking Mark's winning streak.  Robert, Lauris and Sandy were the next three.

Simon extended his A1 lead over Ian, and Colin moved to third.  Rick narrowed the gap on Roger on A2, Bruce snuck up to third but only two points clear of Peter M.  Katherine's lead on A3 was also reduced as Ray edged closer to the lead, while Geoff retained third.  Suzanne, Erice and Margi hold the placings on A4.  On B1, Ian, Steven and Tim kept their spots, as did Peter K, Dennis and Greg on A2.  I'm still holding the lead over Pete and Vaughan on A3.  

Mark still has a big lead on PW1 from Len and Lauris.  Robert's PW2 lead over Helen and Bernie grew bigger.  Kay, Gwennyth and Allan kept their placings on PW3.  Dale moved to the top of PW4 from Mike and Schon.

See you next Wednesday at Heaney Park in Rowville.
