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

Take the EndurO Challenge - Saturday April 30, Glen Iris

Monday, 25 April 2016

An EndurO is a long distance urban race, in Melbourne parks and streets.  Using a map with 40 pre-marked controls, the challenge is to navigate to as many as you can in the allocated time.  At each control, you will need to correctly answer a multiple choice question.  You’ll need to plan your route carefully to maximise your point score, and get back before the cutoff time.  You’ll lose points for incorrect answers and late return.

Our next EndurO is this coming Saturday April 30. You can choose the 120 min course or the 75 min course, and you can Run or Power Walk.  Entry fee is just $5 for adults and $2 for juniors, and if you have a Saturday season ticket, there is no extra cost.  Arrive 30 mins prior to the starting time, to register and pay. You can compete singly, in pairs, or  in small groups.  Please bring a watch, water, comfortable running or walking clothes and shoes, entry fees, and a small plate of food to share afterwards.  Results will be posted at www.vicorienteering.asn.au/parkstreet

Map: Glen Iris (A3 sheet, colour). Course Setter: Robert Hudson (Nillumbik Emus)
