SLOW athlete Ralph Street is running for Great Britain in the Nordic Orienteering Tour. The tour is made up of a series of five sprint and middle distance races over eight days across the Nordic countries in Oslo, Stockholm and Turku (Finland) with elimination as the rounds progress. A strong field includes seven of the world’s top 10 men and nine of the top 10 women.
The first stage is on Saturday 1 June. There is live GPS coverage of the races, which get high profile TV coverage in the Nordic countries.
Ralph was SLOW’s junior representative before he went to Sheffield University, running for SHUOC while there but back in SLOW colours for the JK. He is currently living in Sweden so hasn’t got a full set of British ranking scores, but his current form would put him in the top 10 British orienteers.
