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? Searching for an outdoor activity the whole family can enjoy together?

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

Wattle View

Friday, 1 August 2014

Wednesday ... windy ... Wattle View.  At first glance the course,set by Sally and the Newbury Navigators, looked lengthy.  But clean-up was possible in just under 10 kms, and luckily the course avoided those REALLY tight countours in the northwest.  It was a no-brainer to head east then north, at least if you wanted the 5-pointers (though I opted to cut back west early, and paid the price for swapping 5 pointers for 2 pointers).  

A course was won by Paul, a whisker ahead of Bryan.  They were followed by Simon, Ian, and Geoff.  Ian cleaned up B course to outscore Bruce, who was just a few seconds late but lost 3 points.  In fact almost all the Bs were late, including third placegetter Jay.  Tim scored another easy victory on C, but Ewen and Graham were neck and neck, both on the same point score, both losing 3 late points, but Ewen nudging in front at the finish.  On PW, Mark had his first win with 56 points, ahead of Even on 53, who edged out Ron and Geoff each on 52.

Overall, on A1. Ian has moved to second behind Simon, and Bryan has moved to third. Dave now leads A2 from Simon and Rick.  Mark B moved to the top of A3 ahead of Ray and Josie, who are tied for second. On A4, Matthew moved ahead of Margi and Dale.  No change on B, where Peter still leads from Dennis and Bruce. Ewen heads C1 from Peter and Tim, while on C2, John has moved up to third behind me and Pete.

PW1 is now headed by Ron, Pat and Lauris.  Bernie S and Ian switched positions on PW2 behind Geoff, while Gwennyth maintained her lead on PW3 from Mike and Yanting. Erica moved to the top of PW4 ahead of Suzanne, who now has a clear lead over Merrill.

Join us next Wednesday at Camberwell.
