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


Friday, 24 June 2016

We started from the highest point on the map, so while the first few controls involved a nice descent, after that it was up and down all the way, testing the legs and intestinal fortitude - not to mention the navigation in a street layout that is anything but regular (at least 4 of us went down the wrong street to get to 10).  Course setter Len put together a puzzler of a course - and control 15 was downright mean!

Five runners got the lot, namely Simon, Colin, Ted, Geoff, and Ian.  Tim was again too strong for the rest of B, scoring 60 points, ahead of Peter M, Ian, Bryan and Peter D.  The Power Walkers scores were really close - Phil snuck home by only a point from Ros and Barry, with Mark and Tony just behind.

It was the penultimate week in the Autumn Classic series, and with only one to go, you need 7 events under your belt.  Some divisions are a done deal but others are still very close - on A1, Bryan needs to better Colin's final score by 5 points to move into third.  Vic needs to gain 4 points on Hugh to take second in A2.  On B1, Jay needs one more event, and a score of 99 or more, to move into a place. On B2, Peter and Greg are tied for second and third, and they both need to gain 4 points on me.  Ron and Barry are both 3 points away from third place in PW1, as is Helen in PW2 (with a very low drop score in her favour).  One more event for Andrew will see him move up to second in PW3.  

Who will win?  All will be revealed next week at Belmore Parklands.  Presentations will be the following Wednesday, after Ringwood Wilds.  Details next week.
