Map: Stanley Park

Choose your own adventure at this year's Stanley Park Why Just Run!

The start and finish will be at Brockton Pavillion, next to the Brockton oval.

Two options are offered - a 90 minute and 45 minute Score-O - both utilising the same map and controls. Choose the 45 minute option if you'd prefer to spend less time out there.

  • The 90-minute course will have a mass-start at 10:30am.
  • The 45-minute course will have a mass-start at 11:15am.
  • Both courses will finish at 12 noon.

The GVOC AGM starts at 12:30pm at the same location - please sign up here


  • there won't be any refreshments provided for the WJR as free food and paid-for drinks will be available at the AGM
  • Please bring a change of footwear and clothing to keep the floors dry and yourselves warm

New to Score-O events?

Score events have no set route - your map will only show you the start and finish (same location) and all available controls. Each control is worth a certain number of points - either 30, 40, 50, 60 or 70. Your task is to choose your route, scoring as many points as possible - and return before the time limit is up to avoid time penalties.

Why Just Run

What should I bring? Wear something comfortable that you don't mind getting a little dirty! If it's wet outside, you might want to consider a change of shoes and socks! A compass is optional (we have extra ones for borrowing). For added safety, a whistle is mandatory for all GVOC events. Read more in the WJR Introduction to Orienteering.

How much does it cost? Regular "Why Just Run:" events cost adult: $10 / under 20: $5 / family maximum: $20 (sorry, we only accept cash and cheques - no credit or debit). Some special events may cost a little more, and this will be made clear in the event detail above.

Club membership is also required: adult newcomer: $10 / adult renewal: $20 / under 20: $5 / family maximum: $40 (sorry, we only accept cash and cheques - no credit or debit)
