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

Diamond Creek Report

Sunday, 30 August 2015

After last weekend's sunny weather it was a shock to realise winter was still with us. Further shocks followed as we were presented with this amazing full colour map containing more visual information than my poor pre-dementia brain could handle. I'm a binary sort of person when it comes to map reading, either its a route or its not but this kaleidoscope of colours sent me into meltdown!  Not to mention the cunning placement of controls on either side of Diamond Creek which required close map scrutiny to determine possible routes, very challenging when your huffing and puffing up steep hills through slippery mud and long grass! The placement of controls 16 and 13 at the southern extremity of the map were cause for great mental turmoil. Normally I would have bagged those but today I dropped them and got the rest with 5 minutes to spare. The ultra steep climb from 5 to 2 through knee high wet grass was a highlight as was my 2 meter rock climb onto the oval from 3! Normally I cover 9 - 10 km but today I only did 7.5km as this course was more bush-o than street-o. My compliments to the course setter for a very challenging event.

My route:- 18 controls 61 points  7.47kms http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/fullscreen/837135819/
