Who are we 

South East Lancashire Orienteering Club (SELOC) is an orienteering club primarily covering the northern districts of Greater Manchester - Salford, Wigan, Bolton, Bury, Rochdale, Oldham and surrounding areas. 

We are one of the oldest established clubs in the sport, having been formed in 1965 and were one of the founder members of the NWOA North West Orienteering Association. Both are members of British Orienteering, the governing body of the sport in the UK.
