Introduction: Orienteering is a great way to exercise both your body and your brain.

Street-O: In Street-O you run, walk (or even push a pram) around a suburban course trying to get as many points as you can in 45 minutes. The location and point value of “controls” are given to you on a specially prepared map. You choose which controls to visit and how to get to them.

Who Can Compete: Open to all comers and all abilities, although children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

What You Need:  You will need to have a smartphone with the app “MapRun” installed. No other equipment is required. Wear what you would normally wear when doing something active.

When Is It: Every Wednesday afternoon from October through February. Start times available from 5:00pm to 6:30pm.

Where Is it: Each Street-O event is in a different location. We have maps covering nearly all of the suburbs of Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and Maitland plus parts of Port Stephens. To find where the event is each week, see the latest calendar of Street-O events.

Cost: Click here to see the current entry fees
: We encourage competitors to enter online (via Eventor) before 3:30pm on the day of the event (i.e. the Wednesday).

The Street-O Series: The Street-O Series (SS) consists of 17 events run over the October-February period. Your series score is made up from your best 10 results over the 17 events. The most coveted prize in the series, though, is the “Toblerone” Award … for those who make it to all 17 events!
