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.
