Park Street Summer Series – Give It A Go!


If you haven’t been to Park Street orienteering for a while, why not get back into the habit? A nice brisk walk or run on a balmy summer evening (with a map and 20 controls to find) is the perfect way to get yourself fit, enjoy some fresh air, work off a few kilos, get away from the screen/chores/homework/routine, catch up with friends, and give your brain a workout too! Events are on every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening, starting from 7pm (register from 6.30pm), right through until the end of March. Check out the fixture and details here. Why wait?  See you out there soon!

This week – with temperatures set for the mid 20s most of the week, and lots of sunshine forecast, there’s plenty to look forward to. Start off by the seaside at Williamstown Strand tonight, followed by a social dinner.  On Wednesday, enjoy the leafy green of Camberwell, with a lovely linear park along the historic Outer Circle rail trail. Thursday features a brand new map, Moomba Park, in Fawkner; and next Monday you can revisit a former Champs map at Waverley Parklands, where you can enjoy the parkland and trails adjoining the creek. Another option this Wednesday is the flourishing Macedon series, starting from the spectacular Botanical Gardens in Kyneton.

Did You Know – head to each week, to read the Event Wrap for each series, along with results and overall standings!

Reminder – if you didn’t buy a summer Season Ticket, please remember to pay for every event you attend – $5 per adult, $2 per junior. It’s nice and easy – just drop $5 in the money box before filling in your card.

All Park Street events have several courses for runners, ranging from 3-10 km, and a 1 hour course for power walkers. No need to pre-register- simply arrive at the start at at 6.30pm, register and pay on the day ($5 for adults, $2 for juniors) so you’re ready for a briefing, followed by a mass start at 7pm. Families and groups are very welcome. First time? We’ll give you a quick coaching session to get you on your way. Questions? Email [email protected], or call 0409 135 020.
