Edinburgh Southern Orienteering Club


Membership information

You do not need to be a member of a club to participate in orienteering, but joining an orienteering club brings many benefits. As well as information and social events, membership gives contact with people who will share their enthusiasm for the sport, and their experience, giving support and guidance when needed. If you wish to join ESOC, you will be very welcome.
