Summer series! Registration is open for the July 27th, mass start one-person relay ("farsta") at Sandra Richardson park just south of Ann Arbor. Igor has been busily updating the map of this venue, with its open parkland, woods, and rough open, so you'll have a fresh and recent map. For schedule and to register (by noon, Friday, July 26th!), visit: https://smoc-runs.com/events/view/3883

Greg Ahlswede, never one to go easy on us, took off all indications of north rendering out compasses useless...but that wasn't enough! He also deleted many of the trails, so you had to really focus on the contours - go easy on any dots you see wandering about as it was really hard to get back in contact if you made any mistakes. So much fun! https://www.livelox.com/Viewer/2019-SMOC-Training-Camp-Circle/No-North-Missing-Trails?classId=205736

Peach Mountain results! Splits: http://www.attackpoint.org/eventdetail.jsp/event_44971 If problems/questions, let us know! Add your tracks and see what everyone did at LiveLox: https://www.livelox.com/Events/Show/38772/2019-Spring-Peach-Mountain Thanks to Jeremiah for running registration this week! We also had a great flag pickup crew - BJ, Julie, Catherine, Steve, Rick, and Joe made quick work of way too many flags! April Fool's O got some chuckles out of its audience, from the incorrect or forgotten descriptions, mildly misplaced flags, a tiny flag, too many flags, and a flag with no timing box. This might return in 11 months with entirely new mistakes!

Welcome to SMOC

The Southern Michigan Orienteering Club hosts events in southern Michigan.

Using a map and compass, find your way to checkpoints marked with orange and white flags. Courses range from beginner-friendly on or near trails to expert navigation courses with points far off trail in the wilds of Michigan woods.

You choose your route - climb the hill or go around. Jump the stream or use a log. Run for the win or go for an afternoon hike - it's up to you!

Many of our events have beginner clinics - check the events page.
