September 2021 edition now available
The latest edition is now available online - MDOC News September 2021 - contains reports on the Scottish Six Days, Skelmersdale Sprint Weekend and the first Coast and Islands event, plus photos from the Alderley Edge Summer Evening Event, interviews with two MDOC members and the latest caption competition.
The club's regular Wednesday training runs are hosted by club members so the location varies from week to week, but venues include Adlington, Bramhall, Didsbury, Hale, Hazel Grove, High Lane, Macclesfield, Marple, New Mills, Poynton, Romiley and Timperley.
The runs are now recommencing following the lifting of the COVID 19 restrictions. Not all hosts are happy to open up their homes so some Wednesdays the runs will meet at a neutral venue.

Following the recent announcements by the government, British Orienteering has amended the operational guidance for orienteering events in England.
The move to Step 4 on 19 July in England sees the removal of a large number of restrictions, with no set restrictions on the format or how many people can take part in sport and physical activity.
British Orienteering would like to thank all the volunteers and clubs who’ve worked hard within the previous restrictions to ensure the sport returned in a safe a manner as possible. Whilst restrictions have been lifted, COVID is very much still in circulation and we urge a continued responsible approach to running events and coach sessions. Some people will still be cautious so please be mindful to respect others personal choices as some normality returns.
The following simple overarching guidance of key considerations for participants, orienteering coaches, officials and athletes is a summary of relevant Government guidance.
An accompanying set of FAQs contain information on specific questions, whilst Sport England has also published separate FAQs.
Please familiarise yourself with the new guidance:
