Saturday Series

Welcome to our page for the Saturday Series (fondly known as "CakeO").  The increasingly popular Saturday afternoon events are particularly enjoyed by family groups.  CakeO runs from April-October each year. In off weeks and over summer we often hold informal "BrunchO" training runs on Saturday mornings - see below.

What a great way to finish the Saturday series - a gorgeous day, and a great course with at least half the controls in the park.  Barry added to the fun by putting out two different "20" controls - but you could only choose one.  They both looked deceptively easy but closer inspection revealed that you had to REALLY want them to make it worth while!  Final results were on the line for the all important series awards, which we'll present on Wednesday October 18th at Forest Chase, along with a free sausage sizzle.

The A course winner was Ian, one of five people to score a maximum 70 points.  The others were Nick, Helen, Stephen and Ron.  Andrew G won B course with 54 points, ahead of Reg, Philippa, and Phil.  PW could have been anybody's, but it was Peter K who scored 54 points and got back quickest, ahead of Robert and Geoff also on 54 points, Lauris on 53, and Ian M on 51.

The series winners have now been declared!  Steven claimed victory on A1 by 2 points over Ian, with Ron snatching third place by 2 points.  Helen emerged the clear winner of A2, ahead of Ray and Stuart.  Phil had a solid win on B, with Peter D moving into second, only two points ahead of Philippa in third.  On PW1, Michael took top spot ahead of Robert and Ros.  Peter K was way out in front on PW2, Lyn was second, and Des and Bernie tied for third.  Pat won PW3, with Noel second and Mike only a point behind in third.  Interestingly, each of the three course winners (A, B, PW) scored a total of 895 points!

Saturday Series will take a break over summer, but for the next 2 months, you can Sprint Into Spring!  Six exciting races at venues around Melbourne will take place on Saturday afternoons, featuring colour maps, electronic timing, live results, the jersey points competition, and more.  Be part of the action!

Saturday Series

About this series:

Welcome to the Saturday Afternoon Series.

Where:  Parks and streets in and around Melbourne suburbs.

When: 2pm on most Saturdays from April to October.

Cost:  $5 per event for adults, $2 for juniors/students

There are two Runners courses (60 mins and 45 mins) and a 60 min Power Walkers course. All courses are SCORE format, with the aim being to visit as many controls as possible in the allocated time.

Refreshments are available after all events. Please stay for a while and bring a plate of food to share. Do not rely on public toilets being available or accessible near start locations on Saturdays.

All Park and Street Orienteering events welcome people of all abilities and ages. There are a range of courses that accommodate everyone from the elite sports person right through to those who are just looking for a good walk to help stay in shape.

Saturday events are ideal for newcomers, and for kids.  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's Park and Street Orienteering events are available at the events. And of course information is available on this website.

Enquiries:  Peter Yeates, tel 0407 345 368
