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

Mill Park Lakes

Sunday, 14 May 2017

Mill Park Lakes is a developing area, and an evolving map.  Course setter Russell kindly evolved the northern hills right out, leaving us with a complex mix of lakes, parks, trails and open spaces, but not too many contours to think about.  It was a wonderful way to spend a Saturday afternoon.  Russell's courses are always a great challenge and this one was no exception, with the two fastest A course runners taking completely different routes.

The fastest three on A course were Ted, Ian and Ron, all scoring a maximum 70 points.  Phil won B course with 44 points - despite only getting 2 of the 5 pointers, he focused on the 3 and 4 pointers, which was enough for the win. Philippa was second, just ahead of Dennis in third.  PW was a close one, with Rob and Ros each scoring 47, but Rob returning first. Kay was third on 43, only one point ahead of Chris and Ian.  Looks quite a few PW competitors were enjoying themselves so much, they forgot to come back by 3.05!

Overall, Stephen, Peter M and Andrew are the A course leaders.  Philippa, Phil and Ray lead B course, and Robert, Michael and Ros are on top of PW.  Next week there's no cake-O, but don't despair - come to the Sprint Double at Yarra Valley Grammar School next Sunday instead!  Click here for all the details - entry closes on Wednesday May 17.  The following Saturday, May 27, is EndurO no 2, at Burnley, so prepare for a 2 hour or 90 minute Score event - note the 90 min event starts at 2.15pm (not 2.30pm).
