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

Park and Street - Latest News

Lillydale Lake

Sunday, 18 June 2017

What a lovely winter afternoon it was out at Lillydale!  Some people may have been fooled by the word "Lake" in the map name.  Yes lakes are flat - but the surrounds aren't!  Course setter Pete gave us several options - round the lake to the north, or down into the hillier south (which of course was where all the nice points were).  Lots of choices along the way too, and we certainly had to be careful about when to cut our losses and head for home - some managed this better than others.

Andrew B was first of the four A runners who scored 70 points, the others were Steven, Ron and Vic. A couple of others came very close, with Ian G just missing the cut.  On B course, Peter D was a comfortable winner with 51 points ahead of Phil on 46 and Philly on 44.  Rob took the win on PW with 52 points, after Michael was unable to get back on time. Kay was third on 47 points, just nudging out the pack of Barry, Peter K and Damian (who deserves brownie points for his efforts with the stroller!)

We're eight events in, so fast approaching the point where competitors begin to drop their worst scores. Stephen leads A course from Ron and Andrew H,while Phil is just ahead of Philippa and Ray on B course. Robert, Michael and Kay are the top three on PW.

CakeO takes a short break next Saturday, but returns on July 1 at Koolunga in Ferntree Gully.  See you there!
