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

Cathies Corner

Saturday, 30 May 2015

Cathies Corner is oddly named - there are hardly any corners on this map, it's all curves!  Definitely one not to lose track of where you are.  The weather was much more pleasant than in recent weeks, and the turnout was 99.  The Newbury Navigators presented us with an excellent challenge with plenty of decisions to be made.  The wide, smooth, well lit streets make for fast going, and half of the A course runners got all 20 controls - as did the winning B course runner.  The top five on A course were Simon, Alex, Ian, Ted and Bryan - and it was great to see some women up there in the top half of the field, notably Jodie in 7th.  On B, Ian outdid Oliver, Tim, Greg and Steven.  On PW, Tony scored 66, sneaking an extra 2 points on Mark. Robert, Dale and Ron rounded out the top five.

This was week 10, and some changes have occurred overall, as you would expect.  Having said that, Simon, Ian and Paul are still the top 3 on A1, but moves will come from Bryan and Alex next week as they hit their 8 event mark.  Bruce has moved ahead of Roger and Rick on A2, butr running an eye down the averages column, this one is anyone's guess.  Ray has a nice lead on A3 for now, with Mark and Geoff only 2 points apart, and Peter B and Katherine ready to pounce.  Robyn is the danger on A4 for current leaders Eric, Margi and Suzanne.

Ian nudged closer to Tim on B1 and is only two points in arrears, with Steven seemingly settled in third.  Peter K, Greg and Dennis may lose their B2 placings to Jay, and Vaughan may cause the upset for me, Pete and Noel  on B3.  On PW1, no-one looks likely to overhaul Mark, but Lauris and Len continue to duke it out with only two points separating them, and Tony and Ron are still well in the mix.  Robert won't be caught on B2, Helen has a lock on second, but several people could move into third, which is currently held by Bernie S.  Kay also has a big lead on PW3 ahead of Gwennyth and Christine but again there are any number of others who could move up in the next couple of weeks.  It's a similar story on PW4 where Dale is in command, Mike and Schon are the placeholders but Malcolm in particular looms as a threat.  Stay tuned!!

Next Wednesday we're at Blackburn South.
