SMOC - South Midlands Orienteering Club
Salcey Forest


Orienteering is a challenging outdoor adventure sport enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities. Orienteering uses a specially drawn map to navigate between control points in a set order. It's enjoyed by young and old alike with courses for different abilities and is a great way to enjoy the countryside whilst testing both fitness and brains. You can run, jog or walk, you decide your own pace.

South Midlands Orienteering Club organises events in and around Milton Keynes.

COVID Safe Orienteering

Results for our Loughton Valley event on 13th June are now available. Apologies to anyone whose pCard ran out of punches. We have included results for anyone who punched the Finish. When time allows, we'll try to find a way to include a manual time for those who didn't.
