On The Red Line In 2024 Hector is no longer a member of the squad. He is / has been involved in mentoring aspiring athlets through the Orienteering Foundation initiative.

I am Yorkshire born and for many years a member of Airienteers. I went to university in Edinburgh to study structural engineering and subsequently joined Interlopers OC. I was with the British team for several years before deciding to take a year out (2016) to concentrate on the Skyrunning Extreme Series. In that sport, I had some great results placed in the top-10 at Transvulcania and the Royal Gran Paradiso. I came back to orienteering at the World Cup race in September 2017. When I first came to Sweden I was in Stockholm, but I'm now in Åre. I run for IFK Lidingö.

  • First appearance for GB at World Championships: 2011
  • Best result: 4th WOC Relay 2016
