Juniors at Jukola

The junior squad was well represented at the annual Jukola relay, at which over 15,000 orienteers and 2,000 teams congregated at Mikkeli in Finland.   Niall Ewen (2nd leg), Conor Short (4th leg) and Colm Moran (6th leg) were running for the all-Irish team that finished a respectable 321st position.   Ruairi Short ran the last leg for Tullinge SK’s second team, who finished 190th, while Nick Simonin ran the ‘long night’ leg for OK Tisaren’s second team who finished 116th.   Click on the positions for detailled results.   Norway’s Kristansand OK took first place in a close finish involving Daniel Hubmann, Thierry Guergiou (Kalevan Rasti, Finland, 2nd) and Emil Wingsted (Halden SK, Norway, 3rd). All in all, a fantastic experience
