(Update 7am Saturday 16th - list updated, apologies to anyone we have missed, you can let us know at @OnTheRedLineO on Twitter.)

We can perhaps usefully summarise British runners in Venla and Jukola.

There are ten British teams in Venla, and eleven in Jukola. You can find their runners in the full Venla/Jukola startlists.

Many of the stronger British or British-based runners taking part are running for Scandinavian clubs, some probably near the sharp end of the races - see below for list.

Tons of thought and hours of practice goes into who runs which leg. Factors such as the light conditions, how many other runners will be in near attendance, athlete style and mental approach all play a part as well as this year's terrain type and leg length and position in the relay.

The result is we see that every single leg in both Venla and Jukola is represented in the list of British runners in Scandinavian club teams. You may not be so surprised to learn which has most...

Jukola Leg 1 has the most: seven names in the Scandinavian clubs list below. Whilst Eddie Narbett and Callum White are running this leg for the Edinburgh University teams, Sam Fielding for Sheffield University, Matt Fellbaum for South London Orienteers, Ray Ward for Interlopers, and Owain Jones for BOK-Kaukaa haettu 2 1 (who have Kirstin Maxwell running leg 5.)

Last year's leg 1 results - well done Ben Mitchell, rewarded with a different leg this year (see below).
