I started orienteering with South London Orienteers and have run for them ever since, except for three years while at Sheffield University (winning JK and British Relays, and co-planning a Harvester). My first orienteering race was Highland ’99 alongside the World Championships. I joined the South East Junior Squad at 12 and competed at my first Junior Inter Regional Championships in the same year. I went to Lagganlia and made my Junior Home International début in 2004. My first international for Great Britain was at the European Youth Championships in Hungary, 2007.
I moved to Sweden after university and joined Södertälje-Nykvarn Orientering (SNO). With them, I won Tiomila in 2016, and Night Hawk in 2013. I now live in Oslo working in IT Support, and am a member of Bækkelagets SK.
I spent 6 months (2015/16) on a sport scholarship in Melbourne, Australia.
At each of the last four World Championships, Ralph has had a podium place (top six) in a GB relay team.
First appearance for GB at World Championships: 2013.
Best WOC Results: 4th Forest Relay (twice), 6th Sprint Relay, 17th Sprint, 13th Middle, 20th Long.
