Find Yourself in Ballarat

Great news for urban orienteers – head to Ballarat this October, for the inaugural World Series StreetO Challenge! A first in Australia, and probably the world, the StreetO Challenge sees Victorian park and street orienteers throw down the gauntlet to everyone else, and prove that we ARE the best, as part  of the Australian Orienteering Champs Carnival.

Put yourself on the map – be part of history! Indulge yourself in a four day feast of orienteering.

  • Thursday Oct 1, pm – take to the streets of downtown Ballarat with hundreds of other local, interstate and overseas urban orienteers.  A 25 control Score event, you choose any of three Runners or a Power Walker course; followed by a fun, relaxed social dinner at the renowned Golden City Hotel.
