It's almost here! The final scheduled meet of the season, at the super fun Crooked Lake. If the season ending bums you out as much as us...be sure to join us at Waterloo Rec Sunday, but also consider becoming a course planner. You needn't be challenging Team Kiwi for the win - if you can stumble around orange with a reasonable amount of cursing, we can train you to have a successful event. We promise you'll be better at navigating when you're done. You can dive all in like Ati did this season to great success, or partner up with your favorite course setters for a softer intro - like your route to the next checkpoint, it's your choice! Plus Event Director Clint does all the heavy lifting, freeing you to focus on checkpoints and flags. Sign up for Crooked Lake by 6 pm to preregister, in order to enjoy those sweet hills and Jess's nefarious parallel traps: https://smoc-runs.com/events/view/3426 (or join us same day for a few bucks more) Contact us via email (any of them) or facebook if you have interest in learning more about course setting opportunities.

One of the reasons we love Crooked Lake: It has this great contrast between steep, runnable woods and then a much more subtle marshy area. It's possible to goof up this transition and end up in a horse camp. Or so I've heard. Not that I've ever done that Sign up by 6 pm Friday to save a few bucks and breeze through check in: https://smoc-runs.com/events/view/3426

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.
