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

Cathies Corner

Friday, 23 September 2016

Cathies Corner is always a great map, and course setter Alicia made the most of it - it was next to impossible to choose a first control, there were so many inviting  options.  Once out there, the decisions just kept on coming.  The A course winner this week was Bryan, who managed to get 70 points faster than anyone else.  Next were Colin, Geoff, Chris and Phil.  Unusually, all the A runners were back on time!  On B, Tim got 68 points to be well clear of Ian and Nick, both on 62, and the rest of us mere mortals.  Another big score was earned on PW by Phil with 66 points, ahead of Peter K, Ron, Helen and Lauren.

The next three weeks are critical for overall results, and with a number of regulars off to the Aus Champs, now is your chance to sneak some extra points and move yourself up the results!  If you have fewer than 5 events, you are out of contention, but if you have 5-7 events, make sure you get your tally up to at least 8.

Colin is drawing ever closer to Ian on A1 and only a point separates them, with Geoff in third. But Bryan, Simon and Paul could all overtake the current leaders so anything can happen.  There's been a shakeup on A2 with Hugh still on top, but Rick and Andrew are now the placeholders, Dave has a low score to drop, and Phil and Vic both have potential to move right up.  Watch this space! On A3, Ray has a 5 point margin over Lauris, and Mark is now 1 point ahead of Robert, and Geoff can still make the final placings.  A4 looks finalised with Dale a clear leader over Suzanne and Lara.

On B1, Peter and Jay are neck and neck, with Jay needing one more event to move onto even terms, and they will make up the top three behind Tim.  Graham continued his rise to the top of B2 and now leads Peter M and Greg, but big changes loom as Jenny, Reg, Vaughan, Graham, Denise and Dennis are all yet to complete their 8th event.

Despite the best efforts of Ron and Ros, PW1 will go to Phil, Mark and Peter K. Helen shot into contention on PW2 and is only 4 points behind leader Kay, with Michael third.  On PW3, Ian and Gwennyth will take the top two places, with Christine looking to fend off Allan for third.  PW4 will go down to the wire with Barry just two points clear of Mike, and Schon looking settled in third.

If you can't be in Queensland next week, make sure you get along to Warralong!
