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

Park and Street - Latest News

Blackburn North

Friday, 28 November 2014

A fine night but a nippy southerly kept temperatures cool for competitors.  First time course setter Will did a great job, providing one of those courses that was harder than first glances would indicate.  The line of controls across the bottom of the map certainly looked inviting at first until you studied them a bit more closely.

The A course winner this week was Sam, followed by Alex, who snuck in milliseconds before Andrew. Rhys and Simon were fourth and fifth.  Lanita continued her winning form on B course, leading in Stephen, Bruce, Jay and Coral.  Darryl took out C course from Janine, Tony, David and Ash. On D course, Janet prevailed over Pete, Ellis, Edward and Peter K. Nicole was the E course winner ahead of Pat.  Len earned 62 points on PW ahead of Mark, Helen, Brett and Sandy.

Overall, the divisions have now been set by the scorer.  Bruce leads A1 from Andrew and Paul. Rick heads A2 from Geoff and Chris. Mark has a good lead on A3 over Arthur and Peter, while Roger leads Vic and Ken on A4.

The B1 leader is Lanita, from Bruce and Stephen. Ray has a slender margin over Peter D and Katherine on B2, and Geoff is in front of Mark B and Robert on B3.  Tony and Janine are tied at the top of C1, with David in third. On C2, Vaughan has a narrow lead over Ewen and Greg.  Suzy leads C2 from Libby and Prue.

Pete heads up D1 from Mason and Torren, who are one point apart.  Allan leads D2 from Ellis and Edward.  Pat leads E from Sophie.

PW1 is topped by Mark, then Len and Steven.  Helen is in front of Sandy and Kay on PW2, while Lauris is just in front of Adam and Ilze on PW3. Mike, Gwennyth and Pam lead PW4, and Kevin, Di and Barry lead PW5.

See you next Wednesday at Waverley Woods.
