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

Kew East

Sunday, 26 June 2016

Hays Paddock is well loved by many people, and with the adventure playground, archery, and soccer field all chockers, we started from the southern end of the park.  This allowed the course setting team to put more controls than usual in the park.  Controls in the southern streets were well spread and only for the fast and/or brave, but the selections to the north and east were very inviting, and it was hard to know when to turn around - there always seemed to be another one "just around the corner".  A welcome burst of sunshine added to the enjoyment factor.

A course was well patronised, and 13 runners cleaned up the course.  Fastest was Steven, followed by Ian, Ron, Bruce and Andrew.  B course saw a small but classy field, with Tim able to get all 20 controls and claim victory, ahead of Stephen, Greg, Phil and Reg.  Power Walkers also enjoyed a high scoring course, with Michael scoring 66 points to win, from Kay, Barry, Ian M and Ros.

Peter M has moved to the top of A1, with Ray in second and Ian now third after walking this week.  Deb leads A2 by only 3 points from Robert, with Dale third.  On B, I'm still in front of Phil, but Pete has moved into third.  No change on PW1 with Michael, Ros and Barry on top; PW2 is a similar story where Allan, Pat and Ian S retain their lead.  Overall, there were no changes to the top 3 in any division.

Next Saturday, June 2, is EndurO 2, in Boronia/Ferntree Gully.  PLEASE NOTE IMPORTANT CHANGES - by popular demand, the shorter course has been LENGTHENED to 90 minutes, and will now start at 2.15pm, instead of the previously advertised 2.30pm.  The finish time remains 3.45pm.  Instead of a question and 3 multichoice answers, you will receive a series of statements, and your answer will be Y or N (Yes or No) - eg "the letterbox at no 25 is made of wood" - if it's made of metal or concrete, your answer is N.

JWOC Jam will be on sale - your last opportunity!
