Summer Anytime Series – Melbourne Park Street in October

Orienteering Victoria is providing a virtual Park Street series during October, using maps published online, and MapRun to produce results.  There is no on-site organizer, or fixed day/time – simply print a map that fits within your 10 km radius, and complete a course any time within the following 7 days.

Fixture: note these may differ from the dates for events listed for October in the printed fixture. Start locations remain as published. Click here for a list of Coming Events.

Oct 4 – 10 Academy Hill Maidstone Gardiners Bend BoulderDash
Oct 11 – 17 Koolamara Travancore Highbury Hill Woodridge
Oct 18 – 24 Glen Eira East Footscray Central Tunstall Junction Darebin Parklands
Oct 25 – 31 Bayswater Ascot Vale Deepdene Eltham Parklands

More events will be added if restrictions remain in place beyond October.

How to participate:

  • Each Monday, four new maps will be published, and made available in MapRun. Download the maps from here
  • Courses are Scatter (A to D) for Runners, and Score (65 min) for Power Walkers. Maps will have either 20 or 25 controls. Runners’ courses will vary in length from approx. 3.5km to 10km.
  • Use MapRun6 (phone) or MapRunG (watch) to complete a course at any time that suits you.
  • You must complete course/s before 9pm on the Sunday following the map release.
  • You can complete a course on ANY map which falls within your travel radius.
  • You can use multiple maps, or the same map multiple times. But only ONE result per week, ie your best result/highest score, is counted.
  • GPS tracks in MapRun will remain hidden until Sunday 9pm.
  • If you are unable to use MapRun6 or MapRunG, you can upload a GPX track – contact [email protected] to find out more.
  • Winners on each course, on each of the four maps, will receive 100 points, second placegetters receive 99 points, etc. Weekly results will be published
  • There is no entry fee, or requirement to sign up online. Anyone with a MapRun result submitted before the expiry day/time, on the nominated maps, is automatically included.
  • Results for the SAS are not part of the Summer Series 2021-22 competition. In-person events will resume as soon as community sport is permitted.

Exercise travel restrictions:

The Start location must be within your travel radius.  Use this tool to see how far you can go.

If some controls are outside your radius, you cannot include those controls.  Print the map, then cross out any controls outside your radius. Make sure there are enough accessible controls to complete the course you’ve chosen to do.

You must follow the public health directives for gathering restrictions, time and travel limits, vaccination status, and face coverings.
