Adventures with Maps

Don't stand on the sidelines - orienteering is a sport that the whole family can participate in and enjoy together. If you want to be more than a chauffeur, caterer or clothes washer, get outdoors with a map. Every event offers a different adventure: choose yours!

Orienteering Victoria hopes all participants from Australia and overseas enjoyed the 2015 Australian Championships Carnival.

Sprint Into Spring 2015

Thursday, 8 October 2015

It's back - bigger, brighter, bolder and better than ever!  Sprint Into Spring in 2015 features 6 races on Saturday afternoons during October and November, followed by the Victorian Sprint Champs on Sunday November 29.  We have several fantastic new venues, and some revisits to favourites.  Check our website for the program and event information:
Race 1 is at VU ST Albans, University Boulevard, St Albans (Melway 26 A3), on Saturday October 17. This was the very first venue for Sprint Into Spring, and a great opportunity to revisit this complex campus that caught many of us out!  Online entries close on Wednesday October 14.  Our course setter is Nick Collins, and the organisers are Bayside Kangaroos.
Race 2 is at Darebin Parklands, at the east end of Separation Street in Alphington (Melway 31 D9), on Saturday October 24.  Don't be fooled by the open spaces - course setter Patrick Jaffe (MFR) will be going all out to test your mettle.  Online entries close on Wednesday October 21.
2015 features:
  • All courses set by Vic Juniors
  • Jersey awards for male AND female overall and category winners
  • Best 5 scores count for overall awards
  • OLynx for quick entry and live results
  • Start any time from 1.30-3.30pm (extended to meet demand); register from 1.00pm.
  • Special guest coaching at events 3, 4 and 5
Discounted pre-entry can be obtained by entering via Eventor:
$8 for adults, $4 for juniors.  Choose any of the three courses, enter online, and pay on the day.  Series tickets are also available for orienteering club members who enter online - 6 events for the price of 5.  Entries are open now, and close 3 days prior to each event.  Enter on the day is also available - $10 adults, $5 juniors (includes SI stick loan).
