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

Park and Street - Latest News

Bundoora Parklands

Tuesday, 10 October 2017

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!
